CRYPTONITE comes here with a penalty for a narrow victory over the trip at Wolverhampton so this looks more difficult, though there's a distinct lack of serious recent form among his rivals. Eponina has had three maiden runs at Newcastle and shown some potential while Charlie Fellowes should expect more from Treagus, who had the regulation three maiden runs before making his handicap debut and is out of a mare who has produced winners with her first four offspring. Tea El Tee never got involved over the minimum at Windsor last month but was going on at the finish and may prove best of the remainder.
