Seamus Durack wouldn't be best known for handling sprinters but has worked the oracle with the ex-Irish Breccbennach, though it was over 7f that he scored last time. CRUISE TOTHELIMIT had been going well in this sort of company until tried at a much higher grade at Ffos Las where he couldn't cope. He's just 4lb higher than when last successful and can take this at a fair price. Nenge Mboko completed a hat-trick before taking on just too much at Goodwood and this should be more to his liking while Midnight Rider bounced back to form with a fine run behind Hadaj here last time.
