With both Fascination and Stadium Of Light engaged to run here on yesterday, the vote goes to INDEFINITE HOPE. A multiple winner in Italy, Marco Botti's charge was a disappointing favourite on his UK debut over this trip at Lingfield, but with that first run for nearly three months under his belt he can make amends here. Loyalty is in better form now than when tried over a similar distance earlier this year and Jasmin Rai produced her best effort so far over track and trip last time.
