Clarion Call probably deserves a change of luck but his poor strike rate tempers enthusiasm. Bedouin Bay looks a better bet than stablemate Oscar Jane but, like Ray Diamond, Key To Milan and Residence And Spa, lacks a recent run. Cash Injection hasn't shown much so far so this may be a good opportunity for BAZART. Bernard Llewellyn's charge is easily the senior runner but showed there was still plenty of life in him with a second in a Newton Abbot seller last month and Robert Williams knows how to get the best out of him.
