Paddy Again had her limitations exposed at Salisbury earlier this month and last week's Lingfield scorer Madamoiselle Bond has more on her plate here. Bronze Maquette didn't appear to stay the extra furlong at Newmarket on Friday and it's significant that she's turned out quickly again here and Merdon Castle can step up on his victory at Kempton, where he appeared to have a bit in hand. KOOL KOMPANY won nicely at Leicester in a decent time, despite running green. The second franked the form at Doncaster on Saturday and the third has since run well at Chester so the form is solid and the Jeremy colt can double his tally.
