A course and distance winner in May, Iceman George went close again off today's higher mark at Yarmouth last week. But that was over a longer trip and RESET CITY makes more appeal. The latter moves in the opposite direction as she attempts today's distance for the first time having won over 1m2f at Beverley last month. Back in the same grade here, she can return to winning ways. Grandiloquent has failed to beat a rival in his last three outings and Fleeting Fashion is having her first start for nearly a year.
Reset City 4-1fav (8-13) In rear, pushed along over 4f out, never a factor, 5th of 8, 7l behind Stellar Express (9-4) at Chester 1m 2f hcp 0-80 (4) gf.
Grandiloquent 10-1 (9-11) Pressed leader until 5f out, chased leader until well over 2f out, weakened quickly over 2f out, soon behind, tailed off, last of 7, 24l behind Wadacre Sarko (8-13) at Hamilton 1m 4f hcp 0-75 (5) gd.
Iceman George 12-1 (8-10) In touch towards rear, headway on outer 8f out, close up, wide into straight over 4f out, led over 2f out, ridden and hung right final furlong, headed towards finish, 2nd of 7, nk behind Meetings Man (9-7) at Yarmouth 1m 6f hcp 0-70 (5) gf.
