A good contest in prospect where The Thrill Is Gone is hugely respected after her run behind Zebedee at Doncaster last week and she does act on good to soft, though preference is for KRYPTON FACTOR. Sir Mark Prescott has given his Kyllachy colt plenty of exercise this season with eight runs, yielding five wins including a recent hat-trick. The manner of his Sandown win last Saturday suggested that he can make the step up to listed company a winning one with the going ideal. Marlinka is respected after already winning over this trip in a listed race in France and Julius Geezer is another with claims after an excellent effort at York last time, although he has it to prove on the ground. The others will have to improve to win this and Krypton Factor can score.
