Sizing Tennessee will almost certainly be very popular here in view of the excellent strike rate of his yard in such contests and he looked one for the future when a fair fourth of 19 on his debut behind Clondaw Kaemper last April. The market should reflect stable confidence, whilst Isle View ran a pleasing race on his Down Royal bumper debut last month when runner-up to Apache Stronghold. Time Please looks the most interesting of the newcomers and merits a market check but it's REDUNDANT MAN who sets the standard and gets the nod. Dessie Hughes' charge ran really well here last time on heavy ground behind the gambled-on O Maonlai when comfortably clear of the third. That was a progressive effort and he can go one better here.
