A couple of these stand out having placed over today’s trip. Great Example was third at Chelmsford and the Godolphin colt should go close but Roger Varian’s yard is still notching-up the winners and AUSTRALIS is just preferred having found one too good at Wetherby recently. Millions Memories won over 7f at Yarmouth last year while International Guy was runner-up over the extended mile at Beverley last time but Neesaan came out second best in a match at Newcastle last month. Itchingham Lofte didn’t take to the Fibresand at Southwell last time and better is expected from him and also Funny Man.
