Verdict

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.
