Archie Watson is still firing in the winners and Ocean Star travels up from Lambourn off the back of a second at Chepstow but BLOWING WIND ran a nice race at Ripon, considering he completed with only three shoes, and can put that experience to good use here. Conspiracy is almost certainly much better than he showed when poorly drawn at Beverley and looks the pick of the remainder
