Pallister is sure to improve from his third at Haydock now tackling a longer trip but WINSTANLEY's placed effort at York came at a higher level and he too will appreciate the step up in distance - Richard Fahey's colt can make it third-time lucky. Speedy Move hinted at ability at Newmarket and also enters the reckoning but Strategic Order was beaten in a seller at Redcar. Battleranger and Regal Accolade are newcomers to be interested in if the market speaks in their favour.
