Chaser Peterborough may be having a confidence-booster. Laura Bullion is best watched having a first run for a new yard but ROYAUME UNI is interesting as he kept good company last season and had a pipe-opener on the Flat at the start of the month. Pawpaw has dropped 4lb since finishing last at Market Rasen while Alborkan won his maiden here in April and is probably capable of better now going handicapping.
