Lord Riddiford was an impressive winner at Beverley when last sighted but it takes a big performance to win these novice races under a penalty. He's entitled to have improved again, but preference is for ELITE SHADOW, who made a debut full of promise at Yarmouth when outrunning odds of 66-1. Better is expected second time up and his supporters will be pleased to see Martin Harley keep the partnership intact. Iconic Knight is another to take seriously.
LORD RIDDIFORD was a ready winner at Beverley in May, and appeals as the type to go on improving, so is taken to defy a penalty. Elite Shadow only found one too good at Yarmouth last week and is entitled to progress, while Ivy Leaguer should give another good account.
