The course specialist Shadowtime will have his supporters but looks on a high enough mark at present. Toto Skyllachy is another in the handicapper's grip and this stiff track will stretch Al Muheer's stamina over a mile. GLORIAM never figured in better company last time but was only beaten a length in this grade at Redcar before that. Ruth Carr's charge should go close with a similar effort and gets the nod. Both Bling King and Lady MacDuff have something to find with the selection on Redcar running.
