Alys Love made her reappearance in the Fred Darling at Newbury and should find this easier. She went close on a couple of occasion last season but the drop in trip is a worry. Al Senad has been placed in both starts so far though was beaten 10 lengths on his return to action, but the consistent Mia San Triple might be suited by this first try over 6f and Byron's Gold should be winning soon based on her second at Warwick. MAJOR JACK only weakened close home when fifth in what was a decent maiden at Salisbury in August. He's related to a couple of winners and should have plenty more to offer so gets the nod. Humour was very green on his only start as a two-year-old and may need more time.
Mia San Triple 9-4 (8-9) In touch on outside, headway over 2f out, ridden to chase leading pair over 1f out, stayed on to take 2nd near finish, not reach winner, 2nd of 13, 1 1/2l behind Zman Awal (8-9) at Lingfield 7f mdn stks (5) pol.
Byron's Gold 33-1 (8-9) With leaders, led 3f out, headed inside final 2f, soon ridden, stayed on and every chance inside final furlong, held towards finish, 2nd of 8, 1l behind Dinneratmidnight (9-0) at Warwick 6f mdn stks (5) gd in Apr.
