A few old friends on view and NAMIR is the pick with Kyllachy Storm and Brandywell Boy holding obvious claims. Namir needs very little introduction to followers of low grade sprints as he is something of a fixture in them. He wins in his turn and with the handicapper granting him some respite, if commencing on terms, he sets a stiff standard. Kyllachy Storm hasn't won for a while but has been handed a very fair draw by the computer. Brandywell Boy appears to get on well with Toby Atkinson and his performance proved key when the pair won last time out. Lithaam has a poor draw though has a good lad booked. Piazza San Pietro drops in trip having raced over further for much of this year. Triple Dream has won three times this season and it will be no mean feat to oblige off today's lofty rating. Colorus ran badly at this track last time out and we are confident to oppose again. Namir is not without risk though makes quality count.
