FULL SWING gets another chance despite failing to land the odds when runner-up at Wolverhampton last time. Roger Varian's charge still finished a street clear of the rest of the field and is taken to make amends in this. Revert and Zaminate both make more appeal than the likes of Clover Nova and Keep Kicking, who have been running in bumpers, although the newcomer Kent Ragstone could prove a threat. He's related to a Group 3 winner and is worth noting in the betting on his belated debut.
