Act Of Magic was engaged last night at Windsor. Talk Now easily won a classified stakes over 7f at Musselburgh last month when False Id was only fifth but Eldelbar won the second division of the same race in a faster time and has since finished fourth, promoted the third, over 6f in a handicap at Catterick.
