Terdaad won his maiden in good style here in October and the betting may give a clue as to what's expected on his comeback. However, GALIANDO has a fitness advantage with the Goldolphin gelding and he gets the vote having followed-up his maiden win at Goodwood with a respectable second at Sandown. Lingfield winner Queen Of Cash went in again at Warwick last time and is still improving, while Whistle On By is back in more suitable company having been well beaten at Newmarket last month. Golden Creek will find this tougher having won a claimer at Southwell recently but it's hard to know what to make of the inconsistent Switchback.
