It's too early to say whether any of these will go on to better things but this is still a decent bumper for the time of year. Bumble Bay beat Hear The Chimes by a length-and-a-half at Uttoxeter but had the benefit of experience that day and is 6lb worse off now. Uptendownone only found one too goo at Stratford while Arctic Chief has gone very close in both starts so far and should strip fitter for his run at Worcester. Saver started favourite at Stratford in June but finished eight lengths behind runner-up Bumble Bay. MADE IN DIAMONDS' debut run at Stratford, behind Uptendownone, was too bad to be true given she'd been backed as though defeat was out of the question - she's expected to show a lot more here.
