POLISKY is having his first run in a bumper and has been called a few names in the past. But there is no doubting his ability and he may outstay these if Daryl Jacob can play him late. Benbane Head will appreciate the extra yardage after getting to within three lengths of Sgt Reckless over 2m here last month. He seemed to act on the surface and looks the danger ahead of Dawn Commander, fourth on the same day in a different contest, and the frustrating Spoil Me. Henryville looks the pick of the remainder with High Kite returning from a lengthy lay-off.
