KASTINI appeared to score with a bit up his sleeve over 1m3f on the Turf here and had earlier gone close over track and trip. Denis Coakley's charge is taken to defy an 8lb rise and follow-up. Chrissycross is proving hard to win with and is stepping up in trip for this while Danisa drops back in distance having gone very close over 1m7f at Warwick last month. Don Padeja should appreciate the longer trip as he makes his handicap debut and Emman Bee is another to consider back in this lower grade.
