Turjuman found Sandown's 1m6f on soft ground too much for him after winning at Chepstow and should do better while Elmfield Giant looked ready to gain his first success on this surface when a good second to Milnagavie over the C&D last time. Madison Square ran a shocker when strongly fancied at Chepstow where the soft ground may have been against him so this looks best left to LION COURT. Sir Mark Prescott's charge will be having his first run on Polytrack and steps up in trip after a couple of decent runs over 1m1f. His dam was Group 3 winner over 1m4f so this should be perfect. Hidden Valley's best runs have been on the surface so she could also make her presence felt from a lowly mark.
