Veteran Daniel Thomas was runner-up to Ela Goog La Mou, who runs in the previous race, over an extra quarter-mile here nine days ago. Two Sugars has been placed in his only two starts this year at Brighton. Timmy Murphy could get a tune out of Claude Greenwood while Fairy Mist, Icanboogie and Little Indian have the past form to figure at this level. ROSIE CROWE finally took advantage of a drop down the weights to score over track and trip nine days ago. That should have given her a bit of confidence and she could well overcome a 5lb rise ahead of fellow three-year-olds Acom and Bridge Of Sighs.
