Galician has every chance having finished runner-up over 7f on both starts to date including at this track last week. Today's drop back in trip should sui, but preference is for JWALA, who was outclassed in Listed company last time after going very close over C&D before that. Take A Note was slowly away when third on his debut over 7f here and will need to be a bit sharper over this shorter trip, but the newcomers are worth a second look in the betting notably Boudoir, Gabbiano and Boots And Spurs.
