TYFOS won over 6f here before landing a double over today's trip at Newbury. An apprentice negates most of a 6lb penalty and he won with a bit more in hand last time than the narrow winning margin would suggest. He's fancied to land his hat-trick in this company. Estonia is proving hard to win with and Whiskey Junction looks a bigger threat on the evidence of his recent second at Yarmouth where he had Star Twilight just behind. Bouncy Bouncy won at the same track last month and a 7lb apprentice helps her cause, but Sleepy Blue Ocean does his winning on the all-weather nowadays.
