Both of Rusty Nail's recent course and distance victories have come on faster ground, though he did win a point-to-point on soft going earlier in his career. The handicapper has taken no chances with chasing debutant Red Solo Cup but the five-year-old Calusa Star still has time on his side, though needs to brush up his jumping. HINTON INDIANA hated the fast ground here last time but has plenty of stamina and conditions are more in his favour now. He's been a bit frustrating but this looks another good opportunity for Dan Skelton's charge.
