It's difficult to get past WHERE'S REILEY in this company. He bids for a hat-trick on the back of a double at Lingfield and already holds a verdict over Falasteen, Dark Lane, who has subsequently won, and Spic 'n Span. The latter only has a head to find to reverse running and looks the biggest threat to the selection on last week's form. Master of Disguise had both Sally's Swansong and Perlachy behind when runner-up in a handicap over track and trip recently and should be in the mix once again.
