DRAGON COMMAND was only fifth at Doncaster on his debut but would have finished closer with a clear run. A bold bid is anticipated from George Scott’s colt with normal progress. Richard Fahey has sent out the last two winners though both had a run under their belts and he’s represented by a couple of newcomers today. Of that pair, Silver Mission is a brother to a useful sprinter and a half-brother to five other winners and preferred to Star Of St James, while Rayong is speedily-bred and his yard won this in 2016. Leapers Wood is preferred to stablemate Pearl Stream of the remainder.
