DILIGENT found the higher-rated Knappers Hill too good in novice company last time but gets another chance back in a handicap. He’s preferred to Thahab Ifraj, who finished second of only three runners at Exeter last time when ahead of Get Back Get Back. Global Agreement was still beaten a long way when runner-up at Plumpton but Tulin has undergone wind surgery since last in action and has claims off his current mark if returning to form.
