Tee It Up Tommo has run well here before but all three wins to date have been at Lingfield. By contrast, veteran course specialist DIPLOMATIC has won eight times at this track. It could be his turn again today reunited with Adam Kirby, who has steered Michael Squance's charge to his last three wins. Tax Reform went close in a maiden race at Lingfield recently while both Liberty Jack and Alice's Dancer have tumbled down the weights and could bounce back at any time.
