NEXT EDITION retuned to the Flat with narrow-margin defeat at York last month. This doesn't look any tougher and Philip Kirby's charge can get his head back in front with a similar effort. Just Bond usually goes well here but, like Kempton winner Rio Grande, he's returning from a short break and Silverware makes more appeal having scored in a lower grade at Ayr on his latest start. Springheel Jake steps up in distance and could prove best of the remainder if his stamina holds out though Kiwi Bay likes it here.
