A couple of the less exposed types make most appeal. No Such Number is one of those as he beat a subsequent winner at Bath in September on his first start for Julia Feilden and further progress is expected on his handicap debut. EPIC STORM is also a handicap debutant having won at Wolverhampton earlier this month and Sean Curran's charge may just have the edge. Fourth Generation has a chance on his recent placed efforts and Icebuster was third over C&D recently. Ellemujie is not out of this off his current mark though Six Silver Lane was winning over 7f at Laytown when last seen and Miss Aix makes more appeal.
