Adiynara is not certain to appreciate the shorter trip having finished fourth over 2m here last time and Mediterranean Sea saves his best for the Fibresand at Southwell nowadays. Tram Express just got the better of today's rival REACTION over C&D a week ago but the latter re-opposes on much better terms and a similar effort should see him come out best on this occasion. Sherman McCoy makes more appeal than Sohcahtoa of the remaining pair.
