ELA GOOG LA MOU can take a fierce hold but the Tobougg mare could get her own way out in front today. She might be hard to peg back if Bradley Bosley allows her to have her head. A fast pace would suit General Tufto but he doesn't do anything in a hurry and prefers the Fibresand. Pink Lips is visored after a couple of modest efforts while Copperwood is a law unto himself, though is 21lb lower than for his last win on Turf.
