Fallon has another good chance in this on board Ocean Legend, successful over the trip at Kempton five weeks ago and only 4lb higher. But the versatile LIGHT BURST continues to impress and it says much that he'd had three months off before winning at Southwell in February. Even more effective on a faster surface, he should take all the beating here with Thomas Brown's claim a major plus. Seek The Fair Land is starting to come down the weights and shouldn't be ignored while there should be more to come from Johnno this year. Ortac Rock has disappointed in a couple of recent runs, however, while Afkar is better on Turf.
