BARONS SPY can gain another course and distance success. Richard Price's gelding ran well behind Olynard when last seen in July and his record on sharp tracks, including here, means that he is the one to beat. Comptonspirit is a speedy front-runner and is not discounted with Jean Pierre Guillembert back on top, whilst Yurituni rates more of a danger than the consistent Gwilym. Riflessione is back down to his last winning mark so is not to be taken lightly, along with the well-handicapped trio of The Tatling, Bonheurs Art and Ajara although none of those runners come here in great nick.
