George The First was still beaten five lengths when runner-up on his debut at Redcar but should improve for that and is preferred to Hamilton fifth Crakehall Lad and Supa U. Cockney Bob is the most exposed and usually finds at least one too good so SHOT IN THE SUN gets another chance. She finished well ahead of Bertha Burnett when second over track and trip last time and Samantha Bell's 7lb claim should give her the edge to go one better in this.
