Yukon Mission was placed yet again back in maiden company at Beverley and the less-exposed BIG THANKS is preferred. He’s also run up a sequence of placed efforts but went close at Haydock on his handicap debut and can go one better. Jet Set Go and Albegone have both been thereabouts and both are fitted with headgear for this but Hail Sezer ran a shocker when sent off favourite at Nottingham last week. Aunt Agatha makes her handicap debut having undergone wind surgery and is one to keep an eye on.
