Dynamic Duo looks pretty exposed now and his recent return to today's distance brought no improvement. REVERED CITIZEN makes more appeal on his belated reappearance as he finished runner-up at Newmarket on last year's debut and should improve for the longer trip. Cool Sky's best effort so far came over a mile on Turf and the less exposed pair of Iz She and Balcary Bay look bigger threats stretching out another two furlongs. Refute is related to middle-distance winners and wouldn't have to be anything special to go close in this on his debut.
