Robert Tart's presence on Bubbly Bailey over track and trip last time brought no great improvement. He should still finish thereabouts in this company but SPECIAL REPORT's placed efforts in sellers last season is arguably better form. Nigel Tinker's charge has made the frame both on Turf and Polytrack and gets the speculative vote on his return to action. Multisure has a second at Musselburgh in August to his credit though he's done little since and the remaining runners have shown no worthwhile form to recommend them so far.
