Incredibly, Cheers Buddy is now on his eighth trainer but the recent Carlisle winner is best on fast ground. Esytopolishadimond has suffered in the weights for his victories in the spring though is no forlorn hope in this moderate but competitive handicap though the vote goes to GATAMALATA. She's only 4lb higher than when scoring here in July, when Black N Brew was a long way behind, and hasn't been running badly on Turf subsequently. Phils Wish is still a maiden but has run well here and at Wolverhampton and should be scoring soon.
