The David Nicholls-trained Loyal Tycoon is on top of his form at present and again ran well in defeat, over a trip that stretched his stamina, when second to Flying Treaty at Southwell on Thursday. He should be suited by the return to six furlongs but needs to improve again to get the better of J M W Turner. Nick Littmoden's four-year-old is well in on official BHB ratings, 12lbs better in for four lengths with the Nicholls horse on running at Southwell last month, and should make the most of the race conditions. Mark Polglase's No Time is another that is well treated but a two month absence is a concern, as is the lack of all-weather experience. James Stark, the second of two Littmoden runners in the line-up, looks the clear second string. Multiple winner Juwwi is entitled to improve for his recent return at Southwell and is another worthy of consideration.
