Tiradito makes a quick reappearance having finished second at Southwell during the week but Loyal N Trusted looks to have a better chance after going close over 7f here last time. Midas Moment is not out of this back on the Polytrack and Adorable Choice has claims on her best form though she hasn't raced since May. FASTNET STORM doesn't win that often nowadays but today's drop in class will help his cause and David Barron's charge gets the tentative vote in the closing event.
