There are Ideal conditions again for top-weight LOKI'S REVENGE. A first win materialised in good fashion at Newmarket earlier in the month and off a 7lb higher mark this son of Kyllachy can continue to thrive in the soft ground. Buddy Miracle's maiden form looks extremely strong and she is respected, along with the Windsor winner Native Picture and the more exposed Kyncraighe (ground likely to suit). The market should hint at the chance of Perfect Pastime, whilst Magic Cross looks a typical improver for having entered handicaps and she can be backed again if the market speaks strongly in her favour.
