Captain Clayton has been dropped a couple of pounds but still looks high enough in the weights on what he's achieved. MOMKINZAIN completed an early summer double on quick ground at Perth so with conditions likely to suit and a good effort at Carlisle on his reappearance behind him he looks the one to be on. Heron's Mill was well supported at Newcastle but looked very one-paced while Blackmore makes his handicap debut from a high mark after three poor runs in maidens. Brunello has shown a bit of promise while Fling Me found 2m7f too far at Kelso last time.
