Stonecrabstomorrow has won over this trip, albeit back in 2006. He's been an improved sort over sprint trips this term thanks to exaggerated waiting tactics and could well do the job again but preference is for SUNSHINE ALWAYS. He has yet to oblige on turf but a couple of recent efforts, especially a close third behind Ellie In The Pink at Goodwood last time, afford him good claims here. Guilded Warrior has plenty of weight, while Golden Taurus has shown little in recent outings so Green Earth could be the pick of the remainder if running up to the form of last month's second at Brighton.
