Jim Goldie has three entries though Laybach would be a shock winner after 33 unsuccessful runs. Forrest Flyer and Grand Diamond also represent the yard and both will be at home over the track and trip with preference just for the latter with Gary Bartley's claim a help. Royal Defense landed a minor Polytrack handicap in March but is now 8lb higher while Lysino hasn't won since racing in Germany two years ago. Sendiym's last success was over fences but the latter's stablemate TROPENFEUER looks just the type for this as she scored over hurdles at Sedgefield last month and had winning form on the Flat in France.
