Chookie Hamilton won here yesterday and bids for a hat trick while Thecornishcockney was engaged to run in the 3.30 at the same meeting. Both carry penalties if taking part as does PERTEMPS NETWORK having bounced right back to form here on Saturday, making all and having plenty in hand at the finish. 6lb extra doesn't look enough to prevent a quick double. Stand Guard has won no less than 13 races from 52 starts, a superb strike-rate though many of his victories have come in sellers. Vittachi is on the same mark as when last successful at Ayr in May so shouldn't be dismissed with his low weight.
