BILIDN goes from strength to strength and landed a hat-trick over C&D last week. He's taken a 10lb hike in the weights as a consequence but scored by nine lengths last time and is worth sticking with until beaten. Callisto Moon ended a long losing run on the Flat at Catterick a week ago and remains on a winning mark despite a 3lb rise while Madrasa finally got off the mark at Redcar last Monday and steps up in trip under a penalty. Media Stars, Nay Secret and Bygones For Coins all went close over shorter trips last time and look best of the rest.
