Toast Of New York beat little to land the odds over a longer trip here in September. Miss Atomic Bomb shares the same official rating having also won at odds-on at this track, only over the shorter trip of 6f. Neither are easily overlooked, but BLACK SCHNAPPS may just edge this. Bill Muir's charge ran out a ready four length winner at Lingfield last time and the drop back in trip should be no problem. Inyordreams looks best of the remaining trio.
