WIND IN MY SAILS (NAP) is 5lb lower than when last successful and was a close-up third in a higher grade on fast ground last time at Newbury. Adam Kirby looks a positive jockey booking for Ed de Giles’ gelding. Whitkirk won on his reappearance at Thirsk and didn’t run badly last time at Wetherby so looks a danger. Glendun could figure if fully wound-up and Glacier Fox is probably capable of better this year. Desert Dream has been lightly-raced and the former Sir Michael Stoute inmate caught the eye on his first start for Mick Easterby here four weeks ago.
