The drop in trip can see Tourist run a better race, however ONCEAPONATIME still looks fairly treated and is preferred to Bahamian Kid. The selection has a few lengths to find with Perlachy on their run here earlier this month, however he is well-drawn once again today and can make amends for that slightly below-par effort. A better start should ensure that he performs with more credit and he is still nicely-handicapped on his form from June 2008. Tartatartufata's best form is over the minimum trip, so along with My Sweet Georgia (Southwell specialist) and Guto (speedball over five furlongs) he is opposed. New Leyf has a poor draw but he drops in class and needs a market check as he returns from 125 days off the track, whilst Green Park is a course and distance winner who is well-handicapped and a player. Kersivay has a good record at the track without getting his head in front, Speak The Truth didn¿t beat an awful lot last time out, whilst Robert Winston looks a good jockey booking for Loose Caboose. Perlachy and Bahamian Kid both finished ahead of the selection last time so are obvious players once again, especially with the latter wearing new headgear, however it is Onceaponatime who can prevail.
