Kifaaya made a promising start at Haydock only to disappoint on fast ground at York last time. He may do better back on this slower surface but SWIFT APPROVAL finished well ahead of him when fourth at York. Kevin Ryan's colt will have come on for that experience and gets the nod. Split The Atom has been placed over 6f but Sir Chauvelin is preferred on last month's debut effort over track and trip while Cosmic Statesman is another likely improver.
