Swiftly Done had Toto Skyllachy back in third when scoring at Redcar last week and a penalty may scupper his chances of following-up. Silver Rime makes more appeal though he's up another 3lb for finishing second at Carlisle while the handicapper refuses to relent when it comes to Karaka Jack despite the latter coming up short off today's mark on his last three outings. Sam Nombulist has done all his winning over 7f and course and distance winner Le Chat D'Or is preferred but a chance is taken on POLAR CHIEF shrugging off a 5lb rise for winning at Beverley given the three-year-old still has plenty of scope.
