Kingscombe won a maiden at Southwell on his return to action and has been raised 8lb for his trouble. He's not certain to stay this longer trip either but breeding suggests WHITE FLIGHT may improve for a greater test of stamina. She finished fourth in soft ground over a mile at Windsor last month and is preferred to Sea Fever. The latter has shown little so far but is another who may appreciate the extra distance while Bapak Pintar went close over today's trip at Nottingham in testing going and should be in the mix with a similar effort.
