EPSOM FLYER may be good enough to defy a short break and top weight in a modest finale. He ran well after scoring at Fontwell in April and can race off the same mark taking into account Paddy Bradley's claim. Al Guwair was second to Dainty Diva at Fontwell last month but the winner has been well beaten since. Tilinisi is more consistent but she took a backward step last time at Worcester, though may not have stayed the longer trip.
