FUME improved for wind surgery when placing in a higher grade at Ripon last time. Today’s drop back in trip should not be a problem and he’s taken to confirm latest running with Mac Ailey. Ghathanfar and Kind Review were both placed over 7f on their respective handicap debuts while Kolossus posted a much better effort over 6f at Ayr having tumbled down the weights. Gunnison was beaten a length at Ayr recently but this is tougher though Charlie's Boy should be sharper for a recent comeback.
