What A Steel hinted at a revival when second at Ayr last month while Shooting Times was fourth at the same track on the same day. Both could figure dropped in grade while Talkin Sence appreciated the step up in trip over C&D last month and makes more appeal than this disappointing Pyjama Game and Angel Sun. Easement is often in the firing-line but it may be worth sticking with top weight DJ MILAN, who had to be ridden right out to get off the mark over 2m4f at Hereford in March but, as a close relative of Grand National winner Papillon, should relish this longer trip.
