Verdict

JUST BENJAMIN has plenty of stamina in his pedigree and the step up in trip shouldn’t be a problem having won easily over 1m2f at Brighton last month. Further progress is on the cards now handicapping for the first time while Gravistas and stablemate Rochester House are also unexposed with the latter preferred on his latest effort at York. Dancin Boy is upped a couple of grades after scoring at Redcar and L'Un Deux Trois also faces a tougher task after placing at Wetherby. But Calling The Wind has won over 1m2f and is worth a second glance now handicapping.
