Tortoni has been placed four times over 6f and should figure over this longer trip despite a ten-week absence. However, this could prove to be the optimum distance for PILGRIMS REST after a close-up sixth over a mile and not getting home over 1m1f at Goodwood last time. Kieren Fallon takes over from Richard Hughes today. Awesome Pearl looks sure to improve on a poor debut effort, while Take A Note is related to a Polytrack winner and preferred to fellow newcomer Rhossili Bay. Mumbai Millionaire is unplaced in three starts in Norway.
