Back at this track TILL DAWN looks capable of recording her first success in what is an open contest. Tony Carroll's filly was a decent third here over course and distance a couple of weeks ago and also ran well in this sphere at Bath last time. From the same mark of just 53 she is now becoming more battle hardened and that should stand her in good stead, so we'll take her to score. Henrys Air should benefit from the return to the minimum trip after a couple of ordinary efforts over further and is respected from today's mark, while Coconut Ice won a good to firm Folkestone maiden last month and if handling the Polytrack is not ruled out. Musselburgh seller winner Upark Flyer found handicapping tougher when tried previously and still has a bit to prove, but Till Dawn is selected.
