ICELANDER showed enough when third on his recent debut to suggest he can land one of these maidens. He'll have benefited for the experience and Mark Johnston has a good line on the form as stablemate Parley beat Strawberrymystique at Wolverhampton last time. Yajber failed to show any improvement on his latest outing, but he had earlier finished ahead of the re-opposing Cutting It Fine at Lingfield behind yet another Johnston-trained winner in Baileys Strider, while better is expected from Salford Prince on his return to action as he was sent off favourite for his disappointing debut at Windsor in October.
