Black Truffle was a narrow winner at Lingfield last time and is 4lb higher here. He has a poor draw as does Great Crested, who showed massive improvement when stepped up to a mile here last time. INDIGO MOON has shown some promise and is still unexposed. Denis Coakley's Sleeping Indian filly may be worth a speculative interest under Kiwi rider James McDonald as Idle Curiosity has gone backwards since beating Black Truffle here in April.
