WORLD TITLE was beaten 8l on his debut in heavy going at Haydock but that looked quite a hot event and Archie Watson's charge is likely to take some beating. Royal Council looks best of the remainder with experience but one of the newcomers may prove more of a threat. Lord Of The Alps is a brother to a winning miler and half-brother to two middle-distance winners while Northern Hope has a cracking pedigree for this being a half-brother to two 1 mile winners and out of a 7f winner. Richard Fahey gets plenty of winners here so Trickydickysimpson is one to keep an eye on.
