MAIN LINE has only had one run on Turf so far, finishing in mid-division over a longer trip at Newmarket in June. But there's no reason why he won't reproduce his useful Polytrack form on the surface given time and he's racing over a more suitable trip today. He gets the nod though it would be no surprise to see C&D winner Snow Trooper in the firing-line again and Lutine Charlie arrives in decent form, though is 3lb wrong in the weights. Myboyalfie may be in the handicapper's grip now while Copperwood appears to have two ways of running but the three-year-old Derfenna Art should give another good account and Significant Move coped surprisingly well with the drop in distance at Sandown and is well treated nowadays. He's preferred to Halling Dancer of the others.
