Another race which is complicated by the fact that a couple of the likely principles were due to run here yesterday. Outrageous Request and Formal Bid were both entered in the claimer and the former was beaten more than six lengths when only fourth behind Dhualar Dhar here earlier in the month, though will be 7lb better off today if taking part. Mikey Ennis steered Cadore to an easy victory over track and trip at the end of July and goes well here.
