Cono Zur bids for hat-trick having been raised a further 4lb for a cosy win at Musselburgh. He's not easily dismissed in his current frame of mind and should confirm latest running with Tectonic. Irish raider and Galway winner Toufan Express would prefer some cut in the ground but Mu'Ajiza has claims on her handicap debut. It's tempting to consider SILVER RIME is now in the handicapper's grip having landed a double earlier in the summer. But he went close in a Class 3 handicap at Musselburgh last week and Linda Perratt's charge may not have finished winning yet.
