A poor contest complicated by the fact that Key To Milan has been treading water off his current mark and a couple of his rivals are returning from a break. JUICY LEGEND has been given plenty of time to recover from his fall at Plumpton in May. He'd been generally thereabouts in previous runs so a gamble is taken on his fitness. Entry To Evrywhere is getting no closer while Mac's Grey has been chasing, though races off a lower mark back over hurdles.
