Ended last term on the up, scoring at Newbury (2m) in October. Limited impact over hurdles thereafter but booking of De Sousa catches the eye having had a wind operation.

Verdict

THE PINTO KID has been a slow burner for a patient trainer in James Fanshawe and he is best judged on his second start when finishing fifth at Lingfield, which came on similar ground to what he will encounter here. An opening mark of 70 looks fair for the son of High Chaparral and he has the scope to improve in this sphere. Burn Some Dust benefited from a step up in trip when winning over 1m4f at Newcastle and she could have more to offer along with Affair, who was second over C&D last time.

Verdict

BURN SOME DUST benefited from the marked step up in trip when scoring at Newcastle 3 weeks ago and, with the even longer trip expected to be within reach, all looks set fair for a big run. Affair is proving consistent and should be thereabouts, whilst The Pinto Kid is another 3-y-o likely to improve.
