PICANSORT failed in his bid for a hat-trick when stepped up to 6f at Lingfield last Saturday. He'd landed a double over today's shorter trip before that and a return to the same level of form would see him back to winning ways. Roy's Legacy has plenty to find with the selection and Novabridge couldn't cope with a penalty last time when today's rival Charming reversed earlier running at Lingfield. Rambo Will still looks a shade high in the weights and Alnoomaas has done all his winning so far over a furlong further.
