Locum makes a quick reappearance after finishing third at Wolverhampton on Saturday and his earlier second to Market Puzzle gives him the beating of Lakota Ghost. Nutshell has posted a couple of shockers since his third at Windsor in July where he finished just ahead of SWANINSTOCKWELL. This is less competitive and the latter can reverse running and finally open his account. Pinotage and Irish raider Fellisha have a bit to prove over today's longer distance, but Reggie Perrin and Hi Note are worthy of consideration.
