Tallahasse hasn't raced since last July and it doesn't bode well that she returns to action at this level as she began last year competing in pattern races. Come On Dave just edges it at the weights but today's distance is the concern about him as he's shown his best over the minimum trip so far. A chance is taken on THE DANCING LORD instead as, despite having a bit to find on today's terms, his recent placed efforts in similar company on the Polytrack make Bill Turner's charge a safer option. The remainder look up against it under these conditions and arrive out of sorts anyway.
