All Of My Heart registered her hat-trick on the all-weather and her ability to act on today's surface has to be taken on trust. However, TAIKOO scored in testing ground over 2m1f at Ayr on his recent return from lay-off with Sphinx behind so Hughie Morrison's charge is taken to go in again off only a 4lb higher mark. Kayef has claims on his placed form, but the inconsistent Bath winner L Frank Baum is harder to fancy. Red Fama will handle the going, however, and could figure if lasting home while Palazzo Bianco has won over 1m6f here and is another to consider.
