Grey Missile has been put up 9lb since winning at Kempton but looks a progressive sort and has every chance of following up. Occasionally Yours recorded a first and a second around here last month while Brilliant Barca looks to have fallen to a decent mark. Rum And Butter won at Newton Abbot last time but was less than three lengths ahead of ELECTRIC TIGER and it would be no surprise if David Bridgwater's maiden turned the form on its head on this quicker ground as he's since been placed at Market Rasen. He gets a tentative vote off a low weight as George Woolf and Saint Roque may need this.
