Sir Tyto went close to opening his account over a longer trip here last month and races off the same mark. He may finally be improving but this looks much too short for Giant Sequoia while Wicked Tara's recent success came on Jersey. POLYDAMOS had stable companion Supa Seeker well behind when third at Sandown last week. That looks the best recent piece of form on offer and he can defy top weight as none of the others make much appeal.
