The winning streak of Drawnfromthepast came to an abrupt end at Wolverhampton last month when he ran no sort of race behind HAMOODY. The former may well return to form at this track but the latter has since only suffered a narrow-margin defeat in handicap company and a repeat should see him go close in this with Shirley Teasdale's claim further helping his cause. Where's Reiley has plenty to find with the selection and Angelo Poliziano is preferred to Dark Lane over today's minimum trip.
