MR MO JO continued his progressive form when making all over track and trip on his reappearance. He scored by nearly three lengths so a 7lb rise may not be enough to prevent him going in again. Chosen One also scored here before following up at Bath but is facing tougher opposition today while Royal Bajan has proved best on the all-weather so far but can race off a lower mark back on this surface as a consequence. Imperial Legend, Dreaming of Rubies and Avon Breeze make most appeal of those returning to action.
