Luctor Emergo is now 10lb higher than when winning at Wolverhampton in February and Outlaw Torn makes more appeal as he takes a drop in class having been placed at Musselburgh last time. Tooley Woods has gone backwards since finishing second in an all-weather maiden and Vexillum looks no nearer to winning despite slipping down the weights. PENANG PEGASUS gets a tentative vote as he produced his best effort so far when runner-up at Redcar recently and has more scope then most of these for improvement.
