EXECUTIVE'S HALL's winning run came to an end under a penalty at Sedgefield 11 days ago but he is a couple of pounds lower here and clearly still in good heart. These look a modest bunch and Ben Haslam's seven-year-old may have one more victory in him before the handicapper properly has his say. Dar Es Salaam was third at Beverley earlier this month and placed a couple of times on the Flat earlier. He looks the pick of Brian Ellison's two runners but Silver Lily was found wanting when stepping out of selling company last time and Railway Park, second over 2m3f here latest, is still a maiden after 21 runs and may not be suited by the drop in distance.
