Secret Missile has been a bit disappointing this term while Somoud makes his seasonal reappearance but Edged Out came good again over course and distance last time, though possibly prefers faster ground. SMALL FURY looked to be on the way back in a Salisbury claimer last week and this isn't much better. Jo Hughes' charge can defy top weight as Chloe's Dream gets no respite from the handicapper despite struggling to get her head in front and Truly Madly isn't getting any better.
