SAN GIOVANNI made all to beat a subsequent winner at Worcester last month and is clear of Huelgoat on these terms despite carrying a penalty. The latter returned from a lay-off with his best effort over hurdles so far when runner-up over track and trip while Sorellina Royale makes her hurdles debut having failed to threaten in bumpers.
