Athwaab, Kaylee and Mother Jones all need to improve on recent efforts to figure in this but the remainder look fairly closely matched. HOMEBOY has been successful twice in sellers since the turn of the year and did well to get within a length of the much higher rated Noverre To Go in a claimer over course and distance on Sunday. A repeat of that effort may well suffice today as Electrician needs much further, though arrives in good form. Silly Billy could improve for the fitting of blinkers and Athaakeel and Waterloo Dock are both course and distance winners who would figure if back to their best.
