CHANGE OF VENUE backed up his easy debut success with a solid third-placed effort over 6 1/2f here and, with plenty of improvement still to come, he is fancied to reverse form with more exposed The Caretaker (second last time), and score. The latter is respected, but Sparticle is feared most on this occasion.
