Sooner or later Inner Steel is going to get his head in front and his supporters will be frustrated if they miss out. However, that first success under Rules may have to wait a little longer even though he'll be far better suited to this longer trip than when falling last time when staying-on over much shorter. The trip is a concern for Old Dreams though despite his ability whilst Dimpsy Time, whilst a potential improver, was rather disappointing latest. So a chance is taken with COOL CASCADE, second on both chase starts and fairly treated off a mark of 82. She's yet to score over this trip but was not stopping last time when second to Solitary Palm over three miles at Taunton and should get home around here.
