No recent winning form to go on but ELNA BRIGHT has been running well without success in better sprints than this of late and it could be the turn of Peter Crate's charge today. Forest Edge can figure and finished ahead of Sulis Minerva at Lingfield last time while O'Gorman should be winning soon off his current mark and Roy The Boy has been in good form over 7f recently. Free Spin went close at this track on his debut for David Barron and is just preferred to Clear Praise of the remainder.
