Dan Skelton's string is in fine form and his mare CLONMORE DEW could be the answer to this. She was just caught by Summer Storm on debut at Southwell and should know more here. The latter's trainer, Nicky Henderson, saddles Special Agent in this. The Queen's gelding stayed on well at Ffos Las having got outpaced and is another likely improver. Bobble Emerald was second here nine days ago on his debut under Rules while Apples And Trees and has been placed in both starts so far. Pauls Conn was second at Newton Abbot last month but the merit of that form is debatable.
