Verdict

Jimmy found only one too good over a longer trip here last month and Here's Bingo chased home a couple of in-form rivals at Exeter. Episode probably ran better than the final result suggests when fifth at Ascot but Jeremy Scott has his string in red-hot form and TWO SAMS was backed off the boards at Plumpton on his reappearance and was a cosy winner. He looks to have come on in leaps and bounds over the summer and can defy a 5lb rise.
