Toby Tyler has looked better than ever this year with four wins to his credit. Another 6lb rise for a recent win at York makes this tougher, but he's not easily dismissed in his current form. Powerful Pierre is only 2lb higher than when scoring over C&D last month and he can figure, while Ballinargh Girl should be thereabouts dropped in class. Hadeeth will be taking advantage of his slide down the weights soon, but a chance is taken on MINGUN BELL, who was caught close home at Newmarket last time and this looks less competitive.
