LOYALTY was winning over 1m2f for the first time when successful at this track a fortnight ago. A multiple winner over today's shorter distance, he remains on a winning mark and a hat-trick looks a strong possibility as Derek Shaw's charge drops down a grade for this. Al's Memory recorded a hat-trick of 7f victories at this track when winning here on Wednesday and needs to improve on his previous efforts over a mile while Fast Finian is another stepping up in trip after finishing ahead of Patriotic and Crew Cut over 7f here last time. Today's distance is no problem for recent Wolverhampton winner Beautiful Day and he has a shout with Ryan Moore taking over the reins.
