Bloodsweatandtears scored at Brighton last time and is not out of this despite a higher mark and Whitby Jet has claims on his best form on the all-weather. Recent 7f winner Scottish Glen has a bit to prove over today's trip, however, and Hereford Boy makes more appeal having been placed in all four starts so far this year. PERFECT MISSION was beaten less than a length in a better race at Kempton in January and re-untied with winning partner Jimmy Fortune today, he's taken to make the most of the drop in class and come out best.
