Tee It Up Tommo continues to improve though he's upped in class after his latest victory at Wolverhampton. He'd earlier beaten Liberty Jack at this track and the latter has since gone in at Lingfield. The Great Gabrial scored at Southwell last time but is equally at home on this surface while Tigers Tale has bits of form in better company on Turf that gives him a chance. BOLD PREDICTION also competed in higher grade races than this after scoring at Ayr in July. He can race off his Turf mark today so a speculative vote goes the way of Karl Burke's charge on his first start since October.
