Little form of any substance to assess apart from the vastly experienced BON VOYAGE. A repeat of the best of his juvenile form when an excellent third to the talented Oklahoma City last October in a £500,000 contest would surely suffice and the Kyllachy colt was not disgraced on his seasonal reappearance in a competitive Newmarket handicap. He can get off the mark over this extra furlong. Gambol is the only four-year-old on show and is interesting in a first-time hood as he did make a pleasing debut when runner-up to Big Baz before disappointing next time up. The rest are practically impossible to assess but Scarlet Plum should be all the better for her racecourse debut behind Evita Peron.
