Long Call never threatened over a mile here last time though he sets the standard with a mark of 73 and is preferred to stalemate and newcomer Parliamentarian. But SOLDIER IN ACTION is less exposed having run well at Musselburgh on his racecourse debut and Mark Johnston's colt gets the nod to come out best with normal progress. Play Gal is a likely improver and the newcomer Aumit Hill is related to four winners and worth a second glance in the betting.
Aumit Hill Authorized colt out of Eurolinka.
