Henrys Air finally got off the mark when popping up at massive price at Bath. He's 4lb higher today and looks an unlikely candidate to follow-up, while Russian Ice has yet to win but is dropping down a grade today. Come On The Irons and Art Thief have room for improvement, but so does SANDTAIL, who has so far only raced over 7f and should relish this step up in distance. Dubawi Dancer may have improved since last September and is one to note on her return to action.
