Trappy enough from a form perspective but more so with the Hannon army fielding four of the ten runners. WOLFGANG faces a tough task giving lumps of weight away all round but his nursery second to Overpowered at the Newmarket July meeting is the best form on offer and he's a tentative suggestion. Stable companion Karuga needed the step up to this trip last time, displayed improved form and should go well from a lowly perch. Dickens Rules and Melting Pot showed better form last time too and look feasibly treated on their nursery bows, likewise Meanwhile who will need to step up on success in an ordinary Polytrack maiden. She did the job nicely and could improve considerably. The other Hannon contenders, Costa Del Fortune and Dare To Dream, cannot be ruled out in a complex contest.
