Unlikely Story is expected to build on his Canterbury third over 1m last time now reverting to sprinting, though he may have to play second fiddle to MIKE MAN'S BRO, who shaped like this extra yardage would suit when keeping on strongly for second over the extended 5f here last time. E Z Larry makes most appeal of the remainder.
