Mappin Time has gone off the boil of late and an apprentice takes over the reins while Tyfos remains hard to to win with. HEAD SPACE is creeping closer as he slips down the weights and the same can be said of Pea Shooter. But the latter has a poor strike rate so it could be the turn of Ruth Carr's charge today on the back of a third at Doncaster. Go Go Green has been running well in selling company but Imperator Augustus has finally dropped back down to a winning mark and makes more appeal with Roker Park best of the rest.
