Silver Tigress continues her slide down the weights and should be capable of picking up one of these low-grade handicaps before the season finishes. Ailsa Craig and Vittachi are both recent winners but would probably prefer a quicker surface and veteran Iceman George appears to be treading water off his current mark. Buster Brown has his sights lowered and could be interesting but this longer trip could be the making of MAGIC LANDO and, dropped a couple of pounds since a staying-on fourth at Yarmouth where he was still a little green, he gets a tentative vote.
