EXAMINER returned a losing favourite in a novice race over track and trip last time but went close to catching Impulsive Moment with the re-opposing Galaxy a couple of lengths behind. Willie Haggas' charge won his maiden over course and distance before that and can land this. Jalingo opened his account over 7f here a fortnight ago and steps back up in trip while Wolverhampton winner Truancy attempts today's distance for the time having only been beaten two lengths in a better handicap than this last time.
