Hard to be confident about any of these but SILLY BILLY was only beaten a head over 7f here last time and went close over C&D before that - it could be his turn today. Flamborough Breeze finally got off the mark over 6f at Wolverhampton in October but has been well beaten since and Indian Violet has shown little since scoring here back in February. Chandrayaan has place claims but it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
