ARCHIE BROWN: looked likely to cause the race-fit favourite, Grand Hawk, considerable problems in the finale at Kempton on Saturday, but was unable to recover from a mistake at the second last. The third horse was 30 lengths away, however, and he should soon justify his trainer's expectations. (S Sherwood).

BOY MARTIN: a performer on the all-weather Flat tracks who had looked to need further than seven furlongs and ran on late when stepped up to a mile at Southwell on Friday. Should win a small handicap over an extra couple of furlongs. (S Kettlewell).

HUDSON BAY TRADER: consistent type who ran on from a different county to finish second to Lo Stregone at Haydock on Saturday. Needs more than two and a half miles now. (P Beaumont).

ROCK LEGEND: moderate middle-distance performer on the Flat. The two miles of his debut over hurdles at Kempton on Friday was always likely to be too sharp, but he kept on steadily into fourth behind some useful sorts. Will do better over further. (D Shaw).
