Master Leon was third over 7f at Beverley last time but this slightly longer trip is a bit of a concern. Ra Junior was put up 7lb after scoring at Musselburgh, but Desert Hunter is back on a winning mark and his recent second over 1m1f at Redcar last month was his best effort for a while. Twisted is easing toward a decent mark and is much better off with Fazza than when sixth to Edwin Tuer's charge at Newcastle in April but he has a bit find with AUSSIE BLUE on Pontefract running in the autumn. Richard Whitaker's seven-year-old generally needs a few runs to put him straight but ran a little better than the final result suggests when sixth to Hail Promenader last time and should be approaching peak fitness now.
