Evasive Power had gone close at the Curragh earlier in the year but the Irish raider ran poorly at Kempton last time. Benny And The Jets made a promising start when third at Kempton and Scorched Breath was also placed at the same track on his introduction with MOLAAHETH beaten less than a length in the first division of the same novice race by a horse rated 88. That may prove good enough form in a tight contest and the Hannon colt gets the nod. War And Glory is preferred to stablemate Distant Mirage while Glorious Emaraty could show further progress back over 6f today.
