KAREZAK has joined Alan King since finishing runner-up at the Curragh in June to the progressive News At Six. A repeat of that form could see him off the mark. Saarrem is becoming frustrating with a string of placed efforts to his name, mostly on the Polytrack, but Magic Music Man went close stepped up to 1m4f at Catterick last time. Taweyla and Will are both lightly-raced and others to consider.
