Golan Heights' effort behind Hello Humpfrey could be given a boost earlier but his overall strike-rate of 1-45 hardly inspires confidence. The same can be said for Try Freedom, a good third behind Ned's Indian last time, as he's had 50 runs and won once. Trans City was just behind Golan Heights last time though he never really got into the action. Table Forty Six ran well over a trip much too short a fortnight ago but she's now had 16 runs on the all-weather and never reached the first two places. A chance is taken with COACH BOMBAY, who was having only his third start this year when not too far behind Ned's Indian recently and who has now dropped to a mark 14lb lower than a year ago.
