Greyfriarschorista seems to have two ways of running and is due one of his better efforts while Copperwood is equally unreliable but on a decent mark if at his best. Shaunas Spirit is up 8lb for an easy win over 7f here last time and Hurricane Spirit's recent double came in plating company. DIPLOMATIC was unable to prevent Toga Tiger following-up over track and trip last time but was beaten only a nose and Michael Squance's charge is fancied to go one better off the same mark today.
