This looks a tight little handicap but NO DOMINION must have a decent chance having finished ahead of Satanic Beat and Kiwi Bay when only beaten half-a-length at Redcar nine days ago. Who's Shirl won by three lengths over 7f at Newcastle last month but is better over that trip while this may be a bit too competitive for veteran West End Lad. Shadowtime is preferred to the out-of-form Kyllachy Star and maiden Obboorr but Oratory has been knocking on the door again lately and has each-way claims off a low weight.
