Able Master made all to score over 7f at Ayr last week and looks likely to make another bold bid from the front. However, he may end up setting up the race for KLYNCH, who got his head back in front at York recently when winning a shade more cosily than the narrow winning margin would suggest. He's taken to follow up at the main expense of recent Ayr runner-up Crimson Knot, who can race off the same mark today and Paradise Spectre, also runner-up at Windsor on his latest outing. Rio Cobolo continues his slide down the handicap without looking like winning.
