Daring Damsel left her previous form behind when scoring by four lengths over C&D three weeks ago but it remains to be seen if she can repeat that form back in handicap company. Foster's Road finally took advantage of a slide down the weights when scoring over a shorter trip here last time and remains potentially well handicapped on his best form in nurseries while the inconsistent Always Ends Well could also figure if on a going day. However, CHANKILLO has given notice that his first win isn't far away with a couple of recent placed efforts, including a second over today's trip at Yarmouth last time, and he gets the nod.
