Strictly Glitz has won twice within the past few days and has a 12lb penalty to carry. She was impressive at Beverley and won't go down without a fight but may find the extra too much of a burden. BAHAMIAN C was on a hat-trick when only second on Monday but is clearly thriving at present and can gain quick compensation. Alpine Storm couldn't quite cope with the in-form Ingleby Symphony at Ayr but that was no disgrace and another good effort is expected but the two victories of In Focus were both over 7f and he's yet to prove he stays this trip.
