Something went amiss with Red Warrior at York last time but he'd finished ahead of both Headline News and Monsieur Rieussec at Windsor before that. The winning run of Martinas Delight came to an abrupt end at Haydock recently while both Gothic and Artful Prince are finding life tough off their current marks. All Talk N No Do and DON'T STARE do not look particularly well handicapped either but both try a longer trip today and the latter gets a tentative vote dropping down a grade.
