Good Evans improved on his earlier debut effort when finding only one too good at Wolverhampton last time. He had Ofcoursewecan and Pencombe behind and looks to have leading claims in this. Cousin Khee arrives on the back of a success in an all-weather bumper over 2m at this track but should have enough speed to cope with today's shorter trip, though REVERT is just preferred. She made her debut in a bumper over 1m5f on this surface, showing plenty of early pace, and today's apprentice has a decent strike rate at the track.
Dali's Lover (IRE) 9-4fav (9-0) Held up in mid-division, hung left and reminder over 5f out, lost action and virtually pulled up over 3f out, tailed off, last of 9, well behind Ray Ward (9-5) at Lingfield 1m 2f 3yo mdn stks (5) pol in Jan.
