Discay is probably open to further improvement while it will be interesting to see if there is any money for the Montjeu gelding Homeric on his reappearance. But this looks a good opportunity for the well-bred KEEPING TIME to open his account after a much-improved second over a similar trip at Lingfield. Marcus Tregoning runs a pair of newcomers with jockey bookings suggesting the Oasis Dream filly Anqooda is preferred to Estemaala, though both probably have place claims.
