Zuzinia didn't show much improvement at Yarmouth despite claiming second spot but progress is expected from both Squats and SANDGATE. The latter showed plenty of early pace on his debut in soft ground and the Fahey yard won this three times in a row between 2009 and 2011. Surewecan, Spirit Of The Sea and Salateen are newcomers to note along with Tecumseh, the first foal of a 5f winner.
