Kimberlite Candy trainer Tom Lacey said: “It’s four miles two. If it’s safe, good to soft ground, which it will be, you’re going to have to stay.

“I’d like to think we can ride a race on him. I don’t want him being forced early on. I’d like to see him creeping into it and doing his best work at the end. He has raced prominently in the Becher, but he’s got an extra mile and a bit to go this time. So he doesn’t need to be ridden that aggressively. I don’t think he does.”

Dave Harwood, WPBSA snooker and pool coach said: “It’s got to be the Ted Walsh trained horse, ANY SECOND NOW (9-1). It’s a saying I have when I am getting beat in a match, ‘any second now I’m going to hit some form!’ ”.

Discorama – so I hope that would be a good sign. Good Luck.”
