FINAL DELIVERY bids for a hat-trick after a couple of wins at Wolverhampton and looks to have every chance. Even an accidental swipe over the head by a rival's whip wasn't enough to deter him last time and he can defy a penalty in this. Safwaan's form has deteriorated since going close on a couple of occasions early in the year and Peace In Our Time ran a shocker at Southwell last time having won at the same track before that. Salient looks a bigger danger on the back of a course and distance victory when Dolly Colman finished third and Capriska was well beaten.
