NO SUCH NUMBER was having his first start since May when scoring at Bath last month on his debut for Julia Feilden. He's preferred to another Irish import in Allied Answer, a winner at Listowel last year but making his comeback today. Pravda Street takes a big step up in distance having won over 7f at Wolverhampton last time and Icebuster makes more appeal on his latest third over today's trip at Kempton. Odin should stay the trip on his victory over 1m2f at Newmarket a fortnight ago and Maven has a shout on his win over the same distance at this track in July.
