BROCTUNE PAPA GIO is a winner without a penalty after landing an apprentices' race at Redcar last week under today's pilot. Keith Reveley's charge can register a hat-trick dropping down a grade. Eeny Mac and Broughtons Silk are struggling to score off their current marks but both could make the frame, while Billy Cadiz managed a better effort at Ayr in July and he too could figure. Moonlight Mystery is lightly-raced and may be capable of better than she's shown so far and Burnwynd Boy went close at Ayr in July, but hasn't won for over four years.
