Empresario will need to settle better if he's to get home on today's ground and more interesting is KATACHENKO. A winning pointer, he should be more at home tackling hurdles after a couple of fair runs in bumpers. King Of Strings was second on his hurdling debut at Kelso and should find a small race before the end of the season while Final Assault is improving with experience and can't be left out of calculations.
