SIR FRANK WAPPAT can reign again; Border Owl and Baltimore Jack join One Scoop Or Two on the list of recent winners who rate as dangers. Mark Johnston's progressive three-year-old has won three of his last six races and proved last time here that he can take this step up to a mile in his stride. Rose Blox needs a market check as he remains capable of better, however One Scoop Or Two might be more of a danger following his confidence-boosting selling win at Wolverhampton earlier in the month. Sadler's Mark drops in trip which doesn't look a great move given his form and his pedigree, Border Owl has a 6lb penalty for a Ripon win last time, whilst Baltimore Jack has only a 2lb higher mark to contend with today after a win at Nottingham when well-backed. Chosen Forever holds Arabian Spirit on their run behind Kindest at York, however the nomination is given to Sir Frank Wappat.
