EVERYLASTING remains a maiden under Rules but put two non-completions behind him when second here to Presenting Junior two weeks ago. That was such an improved effort and he need only reproduce that level to land a modest contest. Get Ready To Go is a consistent sort and must be competitive here off a mark of 77 as he's had a nice break since his last outing. Von Galen may be past his 13th birthday but is still capable enough at this level and Michael Scudamore is making a habit of carrying out successful raids at this track.
