Green Oaks Top Cat made a winning debut at Musselburgh and Joe Williamson takes off 5lb again. But he doesn’t have much in hand over Our Laura B on the revised terms. FAMOUS FUNCTION, a former pointer, was never going the pace on his debut under Rules at Fakenham but will be much more at home on this stiffer course and can complete a successful evening for the McCain yard.
