Flemish School had looked pretty exposed until dotting up at Windsor last time and she has a penalty to carry for that success. One Pursuit was another easy winner on his latest start but he looks ground dependant and would prefer softer going. A dual winner on Polytrack, Enthusiastic missed the whole of last year and has joined a new yard while Certavi beat Mallory Heights at Kempton in November before the latter won at Lingfield. Quest For More should be winning again off his current mark this year but DA DO RUN RUN may just edge this. A non-runner in a tougher race at York yesterday, the latter drops in class after a second at Epsom and is also preferred to Sporting Gold in a wide-open contest.
