Josh Doyle has been earning plenty of plaudits this term and he can steer home TADALAVIL in the opener. The nine-year-old has to bounce back from a disappointing run at Ayr but he had been in winning form at that course in July and Linda Perratt's string are running well. Exotic Guest and Black Douglas met recently over course and distance. The latter will enjoy a pull at the weights and should appreciate a step back up to six furlongs having been outpaced over the minimum trip at Musselburgh. Bonnie Charlie is no longer able to perform at the levels he reached as a juvenile, though he was the subject of market interest ahead of his appearance at Redcar. Angels Calling has come to hand at this time of year in the past so any support for Karl Burke's filly should not be ignored.
