Edlomond weakened quickly over 2m4f here last month so the drop in distance should suit and Bill Turner's charge is a leading contender in this getting 3lb from the returning course and distance winner Not Til Monday. Osric is another returning from a break but he has the previous form to figure. IMPERTINENT, a winner over 1m4f on the Polytrack, stopped as if shot here on soft ground on her hurdling debut but could be a different proposition on this quicker surface and this won't take much winning.
