Toto Skyllachy tends to have two ways of running and posted one of his better efforts when landing a claimer at Carlisle last time. But BALTY BOYS is more consistent and went close in a tougher race than this at Newbury last week. Jamie Osborne's charge gets the vote to go one better in this company. Llewellyn was placed at this track last time though has plenty to find with the selection on today's terms but Gouray Girl has a chance at the weights and should finish closer dropping down in class. The remainder are harder to fancy.
