WERENEARLYOUTOFIT finished third behind the progressive Karazhan at Bangor on his debut under Rules with the rest well beaten. Normal improvement should see him off the mark in this company. None of the others with experience make any appeal on what they've shown so far and a newcomer could prove the biggest danger. Don't Be Late has a couple of winning relatives and could be thereabouts while Milanese and Supreme Gold are others to keep an eye on in the betting.
