A decent sprint in which most have a chance. Escape To Glory was backed into favouritism for a useful Wolverhampton sprint on his first run of the year but was never competitive. He's better than that and has every chance if delivering his progressive three-year-old form. He also goes well for George Baker who takes the reins here. Oh So Spicy has a very good record here, remains on a feasible mark and will go close if ready to roll first time up this season. Similar comments apply to Comrade Bond but the choice is JACK MY BOY. He's become a typically reliable inmate of the David Evans yard and his satisfactory reappearance effort behind Piscean at Kempton should have blown away the cobwebs nicely.
