IGOYOUGO can come complete the hat-trick at the main expense of Lucky Art and Grissom. The selection landed a gamble to score in impressive fashion over this course and distance last time out. He won with plenty in hand that day and he is a progressive sort who looks worth sticking with. Grissom is dropped in trip after a good effort at Ayr last time, but he got the run of the race that day and he could be vulnerable this afternoon under a penalty. Lucky Art justified favouritism to score last time at Thirsk and Ruth Carr has her string in good form right now. Noodles Blue Boy put in a much more encouraging effort over this course and distance earlier in the month and he is another with place prospects. However, Igyougo is in great form and he can win again.
