Vivas was second over a shorter trip here in April but was well beaten off today's higher mark at Kempton next time. Breaking Bits is proving frustrating and Deauville Dancer has been a little disappointing but Wildmoor Boy made all at Stratford last month and Soupy Soups should be winning soon, though probably over fences. QUEBEC has surprisingly been left on the same mark as when only beaten a head at Uttoxeter and can take advantage as June's Fontwell second Kid Kalanisi still needs to brush up his jumping.
