LINDORO arrives in good form having won twice this month, including over 7f here on his latest start when allowed to race off a 9lb lower mark. Back on the same mark today as when scoring at Musselburgh earlier, a hat-trick looks on the cards for Brian Ellison's charge. Gracie's Gift posted a better effort when runner-up over C&D last time with Bookiesindex Boy a length behind and Efisio Princess has the past form to get involved but it's hard to see any of the remainder posing a serious threat to the selection.
