A runner-up on all three starts this season, KALOKAGATHIA was returning from a layoff when second over C&D last month. Jo Crowley's colt gets another chance here as he's rated higher than both Homeboy and Gaelic Wizard on official figures. There's little between Gaelic Ice and Batchworth Firefly on latest running over 6f at this track but Trulee Scrumptious looks up against it. The dark horse is Dance Express as she's related to couple of winners and won't have to be anything special to make a winning start in this company.
