TRADING PROFIT has a huge amount in hand on official figures thanks to his victory at Windsor and run behind Supplicant in the Mill Reef Stakes and even his eighth place in Redcar's Listed Two-Year-Old Trophy should be good enough for this. Complicit started off in a Listed event in France before defying a lost iron by his rider to score at Ripon. He pulled much too hard at Salisbury next time and will need to settle better here. Focusofourthoughts is definitely on the upgrade having won a Hamilton maiden then a Pontefract nursery and shouldn't be dismissed while Noble Metal made a winning debut over the course and distance before beaten in pattern race company.
