There was plenty of confidence behind Kyllachy Dancer on her reappearance at Wolverhampton but she could never quite get to grips with El McGlynn, who has been beaten in a seller since. On a line through the latter, however, John Quinn's filly should beat Gin Twist but First Fast Now is a serious rival as she hasn't finished out of the first two in her last seven starts. Towbee won at Redcar last month and appears better on turf but we're going to take a chance on the fitness of LOVE ISLAND. Richard Whitaker's Acclamation filly went close on a couple of occasions last year and, with Amy Ryan claiming 3lb here, may be handicapped to get off the mark now.
