Korngold has ability but has a mind of his own while Malanos will be back over hurdles shortly and will be better for the run. Urban Space has been a beaten favourite in four of his last five starts and has become expensive to follow while C&D winner April Ciel keeps finding one too good. Sunny Future could go well, however, if handling the drop in distance and Toughness Danon is a bit better than his form figures suggest. AEGEAN DESTINY makes a swift reappearance after finishing sixth at Catterick on Tuesday. She may just have needed that and normally goes well on soft ground so could be worth an interest here off a fair mark.
