Collateral Damage and Triple Eight have been running well in soft ground of late so may struggle on today's surface while Military Call went close when a losing favourite at Ayr last time but is stepping up a grade here. LAST DESTINATION returned to winning ways at Beverley last month when catching Sir Trevor close home and, given Nigel Tinkler's charge scored off a higher mark over C&D last year, he's taken to go in again today. Byron Bear showed some improvement for his slide down the weights when third on his latest start and could get involved in the finish here.
