Italian Tom needed 6f and the drop into claiming company to return to winning ways on his latest start, but he has the beating of Vhujon once again. SHERJAWY had Whiskey Junction and Island Legend behind when scoring over C&D last month and the latter has since won at Wolverhampton where he beat Fair Passion. That looks solid form and Zoe Davison's charge gets the vote in a typically open sprint. Your Gifted and Black Baccara were both in winning form at Lingfield last month but may be in the handicapper's grip now.
