Sameem had been progressing well until struggling in Listed company at Epsom and is 6lb higher than an earlier success at Redcar. Takumi has been raised the same amount after making a winning return at Goodwood but there should be more to come from both him and GLOBAL HEAT. Saeed bin Suroor’s charge found one too good in maiden company at Windsor on his reappearance and is taken to show further improvement now handicapping for the first time. Sootability ran well over a mile at York when last in action and steps up in trip along with Sir Victor.
