ORDONEY looks very much an improver and can follow-up his recent turf success at Folkestone at the main expense of Stand Guard and Farleigh House. Keiren Fallon is again booked for the mount on the selection, and the partnership was successful from a 5lbs lower mark in that latest race. After just two starts in handicaps and four career starts there is plenty of untapped potential and with the yard still going well we will stick with Ordoney. Stand Guard is a danger based on his good form at this track and the fact that he is still on a winning mark of 84 here. He also returned to form last time and would be no surprise winner. Sir Mark Prescott's Farleigh House went close from this mark on turf last time and handled this surface well prior to that, so he also has claims, especially given the maestro's recent form. Hamilton scorer Admiral Dundas will find this much tougher with a penalty, while Daaweitza is respected given that he is 1lb higher than when winning over a similar trip at Redcar recently. Brouhaha is 5lbs above his best Wolverhampton win and although he likes it here, the yard and has been hit and miss just lately and we will take he and the rest on with Ordoney.
