Cosmic Halo is still climbing the weights and is now 9lb higher than when winning a fillies' handicap over track and trip in May. Gala Casino Star is now 4lb lower than for his last win, however, and has been hinting at a revival but BREAKHEART has returned to form with a vengeance and there seems no reason why he can't win again with Rob Hornby taking off 7lb. Oisin Murphy has ridden a few winners lately for the Andrew Balding yard but partners Bishop's Castle here for Brian Ellison. He hasn't been seen since taking a Wolverhampton maiden in March but could figure if fully wound-up.
