KYLACH ME IF U CAN was well beaten when third here last time but the runner-up has since boosted the form by going one better. Kevin Ryan's colt gets the nod to open his account. It was testing ground when Roossey made his debut at Doncaster and better is expected from him. He makes more appeal than Mister York and Don' Tell Bertie. Douglas Bank is a half-brother to five winners and is a newcomer to keep an eye on along with Via Via and Chollima.
