David Lanigan is likely to be rather disconcerted to see POLYBIUS heading the weights after only four career runs, two of which have seen him prevail at Windsor. But his latest victory was achieved in the most emphatic manner suggesting that the son of Oasis Dream could be one with a promising future. He couldn't have been more stylish and is taken to defy his penalty. Fyrecracker only landed an egg and spoon maiden last time and looks on a fair mark for his handicap bow for in-form Marcus Tregoning with Buick an excellent booking. Autumns Blush looked quite promising as a juvenile but, in line with his stable, is struggling for form this term. Groundworker and Dutch Interior are each-way prospects.
