Rated 86, BALLET CONCERTO was sent off favourite at Thirsk last time and looked all over the winner until hanging in the closing stages and headed on the line. He gets another chance with Andrea Atzeni taking over the reins for this. Curriculum made a promising start when a close-up fourth at Newmarket and Toulson could go well with the track riding on the slow side as he’s been placed in soft ground on both starts. Of the newcomers, Just For You sports the JP McManus colours and the half-sister to a couple of winners so could go well for James Fanshawe.
