Crestwood won over 1m2f here before returning a beaten favourite over track and trip. Spy Legend finished tailed off when sent off favourite here on his reappearance and blinkers are applied while Super Proud was yet another losing favourite when only fifth at Beverley. BLUE BERET has improved for racing on the Turf and opened his account when scoring over today’s trip at Windsor earlier in the week. He looks worth sticking despite carrying a penalty.
