Lupo D'Oro has been on the go since May and has had plenty of chances. John Best's colt is worth taking on again here but there are possibilities about Byronic Hero, who was taking on better company over 6f here on his latest start. Anton Chigurh went close on his debut on good to soft ground at Haydock, but Lisiere was beaten six lengths when second over C&D last month and more is needed here. MASTER BOND's second to Deepsand at Redcar is working out well and he is fancied to open his account today with newcomer Forget Me Not Lane the most interesting of the others.
