CENT FLYING (NAP) continues to improve and scored in this grade at Newmarket recently having won over track and trip earlier. Bill Muir’s charge should make another bold bid despite a 4lb rise. A slow pace didn’t suit Alicia Darcy at Epsom last time but she won over course and distance before that with Enthaar well beaten while Chatham House was beaten over today’s trip on his latest start having scored over 7f at Newbury. Red Alert has a shout on an earlier second here and is preferred to Michaels Choice.
