BYGONES FOR COINS scored over course and distance in June and finished third off today's much higher mark at Carlisle on Monday. Turned out quickly for this easier task, Robert Johnson's charge gets the vote. Elizabeth Coffee, Captain Baldwin and Diddy Eric all made the frame on their latest starts without threatening to get their heads in front while Fine Altomis still looks no nearer to rediscovering his best despite tumbling down the weights. The remainder are even harder to fancy on current form.
