OUTLAW TORN failed in his bid to land a hat-trick of C&D victories when only fifth under a penalty on his latest start. That may have come too soon after his latest victory and he can return to winning ways in this. Goldstorm scored over C&D last April before running up a sequence of seconds and hasn't raced since June but Aragorn Rouge should go close with a repeat of Sunday's effort at this track behind Refreshestheparts. Yeomanoftheguard is lightly-raced and looks to have a chance dropping down a grade.
