HAYWAIN was beaten only a head over 7f here before finishing fourth in a handicap at Kempton over today's trip. He's facing an easier task back in maiden company and should be opening his account for Kevin Ryan. Top Trail is worth noting in the betting despite failing to threaten on her debut at Kempton in October and Script makes more appeal than Lady Farah back at this track after a couple of below par efforts on the Fibresand. Rowlestone Lad has won three times over hurdles including his latest start at Fakenham so it's a surprise to see him making his debut on the Flat over today's trip.
