Elysium Dream’s best form has come over this trip and she’s dropped to a fair mark so goes on the short-list. Quick Breath has won on Turf but the recent Kempton winner’s best form has come on Polytrack. De Vegas Kid made a winning reappearance at Brighton but his last three wins have come at that track and he much prefers faster ground. SALT WHISTLE BAY will be very much at home in conditions, however, and can get back to winning ways having only found one too good the last twice.
