JUMAIRA BAY showed the benefit of his opening run with a much better effort on heavy ground at Yarmouth. He has another furlong to travel but further progress can see him go one better. Tinnahalla also attempted to make all over this trip at Windsor and though having no answer to Vintage Rascal it was a good effort in what looked a decent maiden. Bobby The Great looked certain to be suited by the experience at Newmarket last week and is expected to get into the shake-up but Finely Tuned was very green at Newcastle so could need another run.
