Langley won easily at Wolverhampton on his return to action and yesterday's run at Ffos Las should tell us if he's as far ahead of the handicapper as he appears to be. It could pay to take him on with SILVER TIGRESS as she ran much better than her finishing position of seventh suggests in better company at Doncaster last time. George Moore's mare makes more appeal than Elizabeth Coffee over today's distance though Volcanic Jack has bits of form that could see him figure. Amir Pasha and Strikemaster would both prefer a longer trip nowadays.
