After scoring over 5f here, HOPEFILLY ran in much better company before returning to the track and landing a nursery. She's only 4lb higher and can gain her third course success. Peterkin has also run in stronger class and has always looked as though this extra furlong would suit while the lightly-raced Montaigne has more to offer and should be winning soon. Touch The Clouds hasn't performed badly in decent class after completing a mid-summer hat-trick.
