In depth

Verdict

A faller on his first couple of outings over timber, READY TOKEN took a step forward by recording a clear round to finish third at Southwell last time - he looks set to open his account. Romany Ryme also put a couple of falls behind him when making the frame at Hexham last month while Shantou Tiger showed some promise on his hurdling bow at Bangor. The latter pair should also figure and look to have something in hand over Ballythomas, well beaten on his last couple of starts despite finishing in a place.
