Paphos bids for a hat-trick but comes up against much higher rated rivals in this including Ertikaan. However, the latter has something to prove on only his second start over a mile and Tornado Force moves in the opposite direction as he's been doing his winning over 1m4f of late. It could pay to stick with the veteran and multiple C&D winner RED SOMERSET here as Mike Murphy's charge returned a seven length winner at Wolverhampton on Monday and is taken to go in again.
