Beacon Tarn finally opened her account when scoring at Southwell. There's a suspicion the Fibresand surface may have contributed to her big improvement and BOROUGH BOY is preferred in this. The latter won a maiden over track and trip before floundering in soft ground at Nottingham last week and can return to winning ways. Volcanic Dust has been running well at Kempton and can figure again while Beach Rhythm can be given a chance on his earlier second at this track.
