IN SALUTEM had just over a length to spare over Abstraction when they occupied the places behind Scrapper Blackwell over the C&D three weeks ago and should confirm the placings. He's since been an unlucky loser over an extra furlong here and should lose his maiden tag, especially as he's well drawn. Murjanah made a bright start behind Nandiga at the Curragh but that was back in May and she may just need this from her wide berth. Sword Of Light has been racing over further and he's another who has been done no favours in the draw.
