Formscan - Tommydan ran on to finish a good second over an extended 2m4f here when last seen, leaving the impression he should be ideally suited by this step up in trip. Stripe Of Honour was fancied to follow up on last month's Worcester success when running in a void race at the same venue 11 days ago, so he remains of interest. First-time cheekpieces and the return to a sounder surface could help CHAMP ROYAL and he receives a tentative vote.
