TYFOS deserves a change of luck as he went close again at Wolverhampton last time and both the winner and third have subsequently boosted the form with victories. Brian Baugh's charge was narrowly beaten by My Son Max earlier but re-opposes on better terms and it could be his turn today. Late finisher Arctic Lynx can figure if things pan out in his favour and Mickael Barzalona keeps faith with Blue Jack after that pair went close at Windsor last time. Rebecca Romero, Waseem Faris and Moorhouse Lad are others to consider in an open sprint.
