All are in decent or hot form with the exception of Corncockle, yet to reproduce his best since joining his new yard and Emjayem, almost certainly in need of his reappearance run behind Ladweb on his only start this term. The latter meanwhile has been in rattling form during the spring and was better than ever when completing the three-timer at Bath. He cannot be ruled out in his current vein of form but obviously will find things harder off his new mark. Taurus Twins also landed a hat-trick before finding the higher level of company too much at York last time and will appreciate the return to this grade. Algar Lad looks ready to strike soon but, in a trappy sprint, we'll take a chance on O'GORMAN. He doesn't win too often but showed his turn was near with a highly commendable effort at Windsor on Monday evening in a useful contest.
