Insolenceofoffice certainly deserves to pick up a race and may well do so today if the cheekpieces have the desired effect but having been twice returned a beaten favourite there must be some mileage in opposing him with an each-way option. Andrew Balding's runners often improve for a run so Black Cadillac should be considered but he was beaten a long way at Newmarket and may be more of a middle distance project for next season and Lady Kildare may hold better claims on her return to maiden company. Lady Mango was hampered leaving the stalls last time so may be able to leave that run behind but the each-way suggestion is PAPER DREAMS who has shown plenty of speed before failing to last home over trips in excess of this and may benefit from being dropped in trip.
