BALLYGLASHEEN stuck well to his task when collaring Raven's Tower here a couple of weeks ago. That was his first start for Evan Williams and there may be more to come so he is fancied to concede weight to these. Hanga Roa beat Sutton Sid by nine lengths at Fontwell in August and won by 15 lengths at Huntingdon earlier this month. He shouldn't be far away while Flat winner Aglaophonos would certainly be worth a second look if the market spoke in his favour.
