Elusive Bonus bids for swift recompense having finished fifth in a non-seller at Doncaster on Saturday. She's back in the right grade and shouldn't be far away but Tuibama may be worth opposing having had his hat-trick bid thwarted at Musselburgh 13 days ago. Middleton Flyer made no impression against older horses at Carlisle last time but certainly has claims back against her own age group and Scrooby Doo wouldn't be far away on her best form. COME ON DAVE is still a maiden but his run behind The Nifty Fox at Musselburgh in June is the best form on offer in this and he is fancied to make the most of this drop in grade.
