Toby Tyler returns from a well earned break having won six times in 2011 and he may just need this, while Hatta Stream's only experience of this surface was on his racecourse debut in an all-weather bumper. He's been in good form in Polytrack sprints of late, however, while Victorian Bounty is back on a winning mark on only his second start for Tony Newcombe. CALDERCRUIX went close at Lingfield last time but had finished ahead of Close To The Edge, Punching and Joe Le Taxi when third over C&D before that and he gets the vote to confirm running today and return to winning ways.
