HEY MR missed the break when beaten a length by Imperium Blue on his handicap debut here in October but reversed the form at Nottingham when Bedford Flyer was third. Roger Varian’s colt probably has more scope than his old rivals and receives 4lb here from Tweet Tweet, who beat Bedford Flyer at Thirsk with a subsequent winner in fourth. Razor Glass seems best on Polytrack but Kool Moe Dee made a promising return to action, though easier ground here would be a concern. Fighter Pilot and Night On Earth finished 1-2 at Nottingham and there shouldn’t be much between the pair again.
