A couple of these stand out on today's terms. Glace just held on to make all over track and trip at the start of the month. She should be thereabouts again but WAR OF ART opened his account here in more impressive style and it's Tom Dascombe's colt that gets the vote to follow up on his handicap debut. The remaining pair are more exposed but arrive in decent form with Truancy just preferred to Basil Berry over today's distance.
