Flicka's Boy, second over 5f in a nursery here two weeks ago, is getting closer but it will be surprise if one of the less-exposed types doesn't prove too good again. Beach Samba was out of his depth last time at York but this is a lot less competitive and Honeysuckle Lil started favourite at Ripon last time so is obviously thought capable of better. Best Endeavour only found one too good at Windsor last time but has already had four starts. CADEAU MAGNIFIQUE is a half-brother to two winners and wouldn't need to be anything special to make a winning start for a yard that usually has them ready.
