In depth

Verdict

Dancing Shadow only found one too good at Exeter on his debut and Kayf Blanco has been placed a couple of times, though returns following a winter break. RYDE BY KNIGHT comes from solid National Hunt stock and is likely to know what's required. He may have too much pace for stablemate Laurium and winning pointer Oficial Ben. Miles To Memphis is another newcomer to monitor in the betting but it looks like Free Of Charge will need a bit more time.
