BOSSTIME has found one too good over track and trip in all three starts in maiden company. Now handicapping for the first time, Mick Halford's charge gets another chance to open his account. Captains Dilemna scored over 7f here in February but an 8lb rise proved beyond him last time. Six Silver Lane makes more appeal as he beat Stoichkhov, Cheers Buddy and Gold Falcon here three weeks ago and has won off higher marks in the past. Merry Mast also has a shout back over this shorter trip.
