Verdict

Fingal's Cave let supporters down again at Ffos Las on Tuesday and has become expensive to follow. Grenade and BIZZARIO are less exposed and the latter makes much more appeal having run well in a similar contest at Doncaster two weeks ago when Blythe Star was almost eight lengths adrift. This sharper course will suit and he can reverse that running with second Pivot Point despite slightly worse terms. Runner Runner has been placed twice over this trip but wouldn't want any more rain.
