KYLE OF BUTE's record at the track, and for Serena Brotherton, ensures that he gets the nod in a tricky finale. Brian Baugh's gelding was disappointing at Redcar last time but he is only 2lb higher than when winning a similar race here in July. Hurricane Thomas is another who should improve now returned to the course, whilst Chichen Daawe and Isabella Romee have both been to the track recently with the first-named running a better race. Bishop Rock needs a market check on this first start since leaving Mark Tompkins, whilst Masterofceremonies is not a winning machine but there was more promise in his recent Wolverhampton run and he looks well-handicapped. Kingdom Of Munster hasn't been with Richard Fahey for long, and along with the consistent mare Silly Gilly probably rates as the best of the rest.
