This looks pretty tight, so it could pay to stick with the least exposed and that's FIELD OF FAME. He scored in testing ground at Salisbury on his introduction and this longer trip should be within his compass. Killing Time and Latenightrequest also step up in distance having both ended last season with a double. The latter won in soft going at Haydock in October and makes most appeal of that pair. Rudi Five One popped over to France to win a maiden race last month and Rising Breeze was also campaigned across the channel after winning on his racecourse debut at Nottingham in August. Mr Gallivanter and Notarised were both placed on their handicap debuts and the latter hails from last year's winning yard.
