Winning pointer Hellorboston will only come here if Sedgefield is abandoned so the logical choice is Keep The Cash, who beat all bar Henri Parry Morgan when favourite on his debut at Worcester in August and should know more today. But KING OF GLORY has a really nice pedigree and it would be no surprise if Venetian Williams' son of Kayf Tara proved good enough on debut. Fellow newcomer Peterbrown is also worth a second look.
