Stitched In Time had Vallani and Burns Night behind when winning a conditional's race over track and trip in November but Vallani turned the tables in a subsequent run here and is expected to come out on top again. Stuart Crawford's stable is going well and SOLIDAGO hasn't many miles on the clock. He was a close-up third to Jack Albert over 2m4f here last time and there's no reason to suspect he won't stay the extra so the seven-year-old gets the nod. Hartforth has been in better form this season and should also be thereabouts while Top Billing also has the past form to figure.
