Polar Express never figured on debut at Sandown but that should have taught him plenty and this is a lot less competitive. But BORN TO FLY was doing her best work at the finish over 5f at Beverley and this trip should be much more to her liking. She gets the nod though any market interest in Dubai Gold, whose dam won over 6f as a juvenile, would have to be taken seriously.
