TAMINO is nominated here ahead of Imperial Skylight, Top Flight Splash and Ride A White Swan. Paul Howling's course and distance winner has been in good form of late, running well in defeat over six furlongs. The return to this trip will suit and with Jimmy Quinn back in the saddle a bold bid is expected. Sign Of The Cross is better than he was able to show in defeat last time and Robert Winston is a good jockey booking, Captain Kallis is held by the selection on their run behind Diane's Choice, whilst Imperial Skylight can throw in the odd shocker but normally gives backers a good run for their money from near the pace. The market needs watching for Irish recruit Aah Haa, however a more eminent danger could be Ride A White Swan who has been kept very busy of late but has held his form well. Course and distance winner Dynamo Dave ran well in defeat last time out and is considered accordingly, however in a competitive handicap the narrow vote goes to Tamino.
