With the rail moved out and cut in the ground, this race may ride closer to 6f and SKYE'S THE LIMIT will relish the extra distance. He won a lowly maiden over 5f at Catterick last month but that was his first start since April and Richard Fahey's colt can make up for lost time on his handicap bow. Quatuor has won over track and trip on fast ground but was below par over 6f here a fortnight ago while Mick's Yer Man beat the selection over the minimum trip back in March but finished down the field in both starts last month. Lilo Lil ran well here on her penultimate start and is preferred to recent Ffos Las winner Intense Feeling of the remainder.
