Alnoomaas bids for hat trick under a penalty but should make another bold bid anyway as one of his recent wins came over C&D. However, it could be CYNTHIA CALHOUN's turn today as she posted her best effort of the season when runner-up at Leicester and is open to further progress. Compton Rainbow returned to action with a second to Raffinn over track and trip while Intomist's run behind Multi Bene in June looks better now as the latter won again this week.
