El Picador has yet to threaten, including on last month’s handicap debut, but Greeley has slipped down the weights and both get first-time headgear in the hope of improvement. Lieutenant Conde won a lower grade contest at Wolverhampton and is preferred to Renardeau but Unplugged is less exposed than the latter pair now handicapping for the first time along with STARCZEWSKI. David Simcock’s charge finished four lengths in front of a subsequent handicap winner when runner-up in a classified race over today’s trip at Salisbury and gets the vote on that form.
