Serena Brotherton is due to ride Layline for Gay Kelleway but the seven-year-old was scheduled to run yesterday at Yarmouth. Carol Bartley will be hoping to get a tune out of dour stayer Father Shine while No Such Number, Candelita and Jawaab have won over hurdles so will gallop all the way to the line. Veterans Pertemps Network and Blazing Desert also have a squeak but MY DESTINATION gets the nod. Declan Carroll's maiden gets little respite from the handicapper but can reverse last month's course running with Anne's Valentino over this longer trip and finally get his head in front.
