It’s almost a year since Overland Flyer won a point at Larkhill but fitness is rarely an issue with a Paul Nicholls’ runner and he was a promising type between the flags. This, however, is an above-average maiden for the track with several powerful yards represented. Harry Fry runs All Kings, second at Exeter last April, and Colin Tizzard and Oliver Sherwood respectively saddle Waterloo Warrior and Toviere, who have both shown some ability. STAY OUT OF COURT ran Robinshill to three-quarters-of-a-length at Ffos Las three weeks ago and the winner was just caught in a Class 2 handicap at Sandown on Saturday off a mark of 135. David Pipe’s charge looks the one to be on here.
