TRENDING is back on form and fancied to follow up his cosy win at Chepstow off a 7lb higher mark with Robert Tart's claim almost halving the extra. Beach Rhythm came good on the Fibresand last time but has yet to show much on Turf while Gracie's Games needs to bounce back from a shocking effort at Wolverhampton and is on a long losing run, though did finish a long way ahead of Dee Aitch Dove when second at Nottingham last month. Monty Fay is still a maiden but Madame Kintyre finished ahead of the enigmatic Spic ' n Span when third here last month and has been dropped a further 2lb since.
