DONTGIVEUPONBOB showed the benefit of his opening run at Doncaster when going close over an extra furlong at York where he wasn't headed until the final furlong. He looks best of those with experience and gets the vote even though Jo's Girl is expected to improve for her run at Bath and Time For Treacle belied her SP of 50/1 with a promising run at Leicester, though was also engaged at that track yesterday. Mark Johnston's newcomer Sulafaat is a half-sister to a winner and out of a winning miler so she's one to note in the market.
