BLACKCURRENT has been thereabouts recently with placed efforts at this track and Southwell and gets a token vote in this lower grade. Autumn Splendour finished ahead of Murqaab when third over track and trip on his penultimate start and may figure again while Alba Del Sole finished in front of Kyllukey when fourth over a longer trip at Chelmsford last week. Englishman was well beaten here last time but better is expected returning to the minimum trip today.
