HI FILWAH looks to have been drawn in the softer division of this handicap. Jeremy Noseda's colt went close on his handicap debut over track and trip, with previous winner Invigilator behind, and looks the one to beat. Live Dangerously posted a better effort at Ayr last time but over 7f in soft ground while You're The Boss was well beaten over today's trip recently having scored over 7f back in July. The remainder arrive out of form though Alnoomaas is dropped in class and could make the frame.
