TATLISU gained his only success last year in a Newbury claimer, when Balducci was 9l behind, but he ran very well in tough handicaps in his later starts and should be ready to make a successful reappearance. The ex-Irish Jumbo Steps was making his debut for Jim Goldie here last month and ran well enough to suggest he'll be winning soon. Uncle Dermot has done all of his winning on ground with give so he wouldn't want it any faster but Talented Kid looks a threat as he's been competing at a higher level and drops into this class for the first time in a handicap.
