Monksgold's third at Wincanton is best form on offer in this and Jennifer Mason's four-year-old should be thereabouts again. There's a few interesting newcomers lining up here, however, with DARLINGTON COUNTY especially catching the eye on breeding. He can make a winning debut though any market support for Even If would be significant and Tom Symonds has a good strike-rate with the few bumper horses he sends here so Ivebeenthinking should be kept on the right side. Venetia Williams' Wing Mira has a Flat pedigree and is another to consider.
