In depth


Sir Mark Prescott has had a couple of two-year-old winners here in recent years and BATH AND TENNIS could be another as she was well supported at Chelmsford last month and not beaten far. Catapult can build on a promising start at Leicester, where he showed good speed, while Spoof was placed at Beverley and Windsor last month. Billy Dylan is a likely improver but Kodiac Express is already looking a little exposed. Gerald Mosse partners Gotti but the US-bred colt sports blinkers on his debut.
