The 1m2f at Kempton seemed to stretch BOMBARDMENT's stamina on his reappearance but he still ran well for third.

Swordbearer races on Turf for the first time after placing on the all-weather and should be thereabouts along with Orion's Bow. Gleese The Devil, Shaf and William Of Orange are others to note making their racecourse debuts.
