MAKE A TRACK left a good impression when scoring on his debut at Sandown by six lengths from subsequent winner Ambion Wood. He had today's rival Willow's Saviour back in third and David Arbunthnot's charge looks up to defying a penalty here especially as his main rival No Substitute is returning from a long lay-off. The latter finished runner-up to Cucumber Run in April last year in a race that has worked out well and should go close on his comeback. Stablemates Trojan Sun and Tony Dinozzo are worth noting on their debuts for a powerful yard.
