TAKUQA had been running poorly on Turf but is much better on Polytrack as he showed when storming to a 33/1 victory under today's rider last time. He's up 4lb but his pilot's claim takes care of that and a quick follow-up looks on the cards. Furas made a winning debut here last season but was behind the selection last time and there doesn't appear any reason for a form reversal. Souville won here in November and at Goodwood in June so she's a danger as she didn't run badly in a better race at Newmarket last time. Sacha Park has only run once on Polytrack and scored at Lingfield. He's generally run in decent company and can't be dismissed in a tight little handicap.
