Cyril The Squirrel won at Bath last time with Bidable well behind but today's soft ground may be a problem for him and Tanforan is upped in class after scoring over C&D last time. Croeso Mawr also won over track and trip on the same card as the latter and she can figure again in this company, though preference is for DERFENNA ART. He gets similar conditions as to when winning here in June and has more scope for improvement than his main rivals. No Larking ran well over a mile at Brighton last time but was well beaten over today's trip in soft going at Nottingham earlier.
