Formscan - HEROIQUE DE MAULDE has performed with credit on both starts to date in the UK, hitting the frame twice at Newcastle, and a recent wind operation could make the difference given the six-year-old's finishing effort on Boxing Day wasn't particularly strong. Tupelo Mississippi may benefit from dropping back in trip after his outings at Catterick last month, while The Mighty Arc could land a blow if repeating his effort here in November.
