In depth

Verdict

A revitalised TAURUS TWINS has won four times this year including a Class 2 sprint at Nottingham last week. This is less competitive despite his penalty and he beat both Gowanharry and Imperial Legend over track and trip earlier in the year. Alaskan Bullet was a losing favourite at Musselburgh last time but had gone very close at this venue before that. He should figure though Bunce has had easier opportunities of late and Cornockle makes more appeal.
