Busy Bimbo finished just ahead of Daneglow when runner-up in a similar contest here last time. There's little between that pair today though both should confirm running with fifth-placed Twist And Twirl. Mid Yorkshire Golf and Stoneacre Hull are also closely matched on earlier running at this track so a chance is taken on MOSS QUITO. He was placed in a better maiden than this at Musselburgh last year and a repeat would see him go close on his belated return to action.
