A low grade classified event with none inspiring confidence. But FERRIER found the 1m3f at Lingfield too far last time and gets a token vote on an earlier length defeat at Bath. Travel Lightly also finished runner-up at Nottingham in July while the likes of Glorious Asset, Tiara Gold and Havana Star have some sort of chance at the weights despite recent poor efforts. Broctune Red is the least exposed and may do better back on today’s faster going.
