KYLLACHY STORM found only one too good over the slightly shorter 5f trip here last week. He gets a 7lb claimer back on board today and that could make the difference. Wolverhampton specialist Almaty Express may figure if reproducing his latest effort on the Polytrack while Gala Spirit and Botantist also arrive on the back of a couple of placed efforts on the same surface. Brandywell Boy may do better back over the minimum trip and makes most appeal of the remainder in a less than inspiring handicap.
