None of this bunch make much appeal but something has got to win so the token vote goes to KYLLACHYKOV. Beaten only a head here earlier in the year, Robin Bastiman's charge finished ahead of Solarmaite when fourth over track and trip last time. But the latter only has a length to find to reverse running while Politbureau has a shout on his best form on Turf. Troy Boy has been placed over a shorter trip on Polytrack but that was in an even worse contest than this.
