Durham Town has done little since his maiden success over the C&D and could do with more respite from the handicapper. Musical Script is in good heart and his close second to Sirjosh over the C&D early last month was his best effort for some time. Double Carpet is better in sprints while Silvee has yet to prove she stays the trip though she wasn't stopping when scoring over 6f here last month and looks a threat. JALDARSHAAN landed a maiden over the track and trip in good style early last month and was probably caught out by the modest pace on a return visit two weeks later. With a stronger gallop and more positive tactics she can regain the winning thread.
