Efistorm turned over a couple of higher-rated rivals in a seller over 6f here last time and Aciano won in plating company at Wolverhampton last month, though he was beaten out of sight despite finishing third at Salisbury on his latest start. Eager To Bow ran as though something was amiss last time but had been in fine form on the Polytrack before that although it could pay to stick with LITTLE RAINBOW in this. She won a shade cosily over C&D earlier this month and, off only a 4lb higher mark today, makes more appeal than another recent winner over track and trip in Comadoir.
