Soft Ground at Epsom combined with a drop in class saw Coincidently run out a wide-margin winner on Tuesday. An apprentice cancels out her penalty but SCOTTISH STRAND (NAP) is less exposed. He won a shade cosily at Ffos Las earlier in the month and this longer trip should suit on that evidence. Silver Duke found only one too good stepped up to 1m2f at Doncaster last time and Jalingo may figure attempting the distance for the first time. But Ted's Brother will find this far enough having gone close over 7f at Newcastle last week.
