Flow made a winning reappearance at Ripon and ran well in defeat at Newmarket and Goodwood subsequently. He's dropping down a grade for this and must be thereabouts but it's difficult to oppose OUTBACK TRAVELLER in his current mood as he probably had a bit in hand when beating Ticking Katie at Newmarket at the start of the month and the runner-up was placed in a valuable handicap at York earlier this week. Prince's Trust may need this but Redvers usually keeps better company than this and Born To Surprise went close in a valuable ladies' race at Ascot last month.
