LINDORO has been holding his form well since recording a double over today's trip in May. He found only one too good at Haydock last week and can go one better against this lesser opposition. Best Trip scored at Carlisle last time but had earlier finished well behind the selection while Mata Hari Blue has done all her winning so far over shorter trips. Satwa Laird's more recent victories have been in plating company but Light Burst is unexposed and could go close after a better effort at Lingfield last time when runner-up to Delft.
