Eight of the entries have scored over the C&D including CORE ELEMENT, who improved out of all recognition after scoring here last May. She hasn't run since August but looks nicely handicapped and hopefully she'll be ready. Mcmonagle led to today's trip before fading over 7f here two weeks ago and should set a strong pace while Farmleigh House and Mountain Coral are very difficult to split on their two runs against each other last month. Tornadodancer is held by that pair on latest running but this once-useful sprinter has now dropped to a very lowly mark and is 6lb lower than when scoring here just over a year ago.
