George Nympton has ability but rarely runs two races alike. Easily Pleased is more consistent though is still 9lb higher than for his only success so far under Rules. The Nephew looked to be on the way back when third at Warwick but may need more of a stamina test. LUCKY SUNNY had a confidence-booster over hurdles here at the start of month and could be the one to beat today if allowed his own way out in front. The sharp track is definitely in his favour and he looks better treated than Jeanry and Delphi Mountain.
