HAYMARKET made a promising start behind Juno The Muffinman at Plumpton. He had a couple of previous winners behind that day and will know more now so can get the better of Seamus Durack's newcomer Eightfold, who won on Turf at Lingfield in the summer but was behind the selection at Kempton in the spring when receiving weight. Snowed In is still having jumping issues but Miss Conduct has already been placed at Newton Abbot and Stratford and is preferred to Cool hand Luke and Rano Pano of the others.
