A few of these have a bit to prove on what is likely to be rain-softened ground, but there's no qualms about that with the improving top weight FRANK BRIDGE , so impressive here last time and this small drop back in trip ought not to prove a bother. Saluti is another going the right way and can prove the biggest danger. Easy Tiger can pick up some more place money.
