DESERT FRIEND was impressive when beating a small field at Leicester in fine style on debut and though he was beaten at Pontefract after that, he was far from disgraced and could notch a second success here. Rambaldi probably sets the standard of the others with experience, but that hardly sets the bar high, so a bigger danger could be Andrew Balding's newcomer Luck Of Clover, who should have no problems with this trip on pedigree.
DESERT FRIEND won on debut then perhaps did too much too soon at Pontefract next time. He has a penalty to carry but looks up to the job. Rambaldi improved from his debut and remains with potential over this longer trip, while Luck of Clover is an interesting newcomer.
