This looks a modest heat and Gabrial The Duke, disappointing so far this term, and Handsome Stranger, who turned in a shocker last time at Yarmouth, both have questions to answer at present. Banreenahreenkah won over course and distance in October, however, and was second in a seller here last month. TRAVIS BICKLE doesn't look an easy rise but has been second on three occasions and a repeat of his latest second at Bath may well suffice as Ronya has already been beaten in a seller.
