Peter Charalambous does extremely well with the limited ammunition at his disposal and TRULEE SCRUMPTIOUS still looks on a winnable mark after making all at Newmarket last time under Jimmy Quinn, who takes the ride once again. She scored a shade cosily on that occasion and can confirm placings with Tilstarr despite meeting the third that day on revised terms which favour the latter. Sian Gwalia is unproven on Turf but Taro Tywod and course and distance winner Choral Festival have both shown more than sufficient this term to warrant consideration in a fascinating little heat.
Tilstarr (IRE) 15-8fav (9-7) Held up, pushed along over 3f out, headway over 2f out, went 2nd 1f out, edged left inside final furlong, no extra towards finish, 3rd of 7, 4l behind Trulee Scrumptious (8-2) at Newmarket 1m 2f fll hcp (0-75) (5) gs in May.
Taro Tywod (IRE) 9-2 (8-8) In touch, hampered well over 1f out, stayed on final furlong, never nearer, finished 5th, placed 4th, 4th of 7, 3 1/2l behind Wilhana (9-2) at Chester 1m 4f fll hcp (0-85) (4yo+) (4) gd.
