Bin End posted a better effort when finding only one too good over course and distance last month. He should be in the mix once again, but a chance is taken on KASTANI BEACH. The latter has tried his hand over longer trips of late but was beaten only a length over 2m1f at Sandown last season and may come good with a similar effort. A winner over hurdles, Dont Do Mondays could figure on his first start over fences and is preferred to fellow chasing debutants September Blaze and Tokyo Javilex.
