Vaughan can break his maiden tag to the expense of Templer and Moorlaw. Trained by Henry Daly Vaughan has ability and possibly has been unlucky not to have got his head in front already. He managed three wins on the flat for Amanda Perrett and his third behind Political Intrique last time out reads well. With a clear round he should go close once more. Templer comes from a yard in form and ran well at a massive price at Chepstow last time out to suggest that a win is not far away. Moorlaw ran a personal best at Ludlow on his latest run and has traveled a fair way down from Ginger McCains yard so any market support should be noted. But for the winner we return to Vaughan.
