Formscan - SHUIL DONN was quite a taking winner on his handicap debut at Southwell earlier in the month and Paul Collins' inmate might be able to defy a 10lb rise in the ratings. Balranald appreciated the switch to more positive tactics when collared late on at Kelso recently. The son of Mastercraftsman is dangerous to discount and may emerge as the chief threat to the selection, ahead of Man Of The Sea.
