Busatto was second at Thirsk earlier this month but still beaten nine lengths. Gabrial The Thug has been placed in five of his 12 starts but isn't getting any better and you'd imagine that a few of these would have more scope. Wandsworth should improve on his sixth at Wolverhampton but PULIGNY will surely take all the beating in this if anywhere near the form she showed at the start of the summer when placed at Windsor and Leicester.
