It should pay to stick with GLOBAL EXPLORER after his handicap debut win at Wolverhampton. He beat Argent Touch on that occasion and collateral form with the latter gives Stuart Williams' charge the beating of another recent winner in My My My Diliza. Stan Moore's filly had both Loma Mor and Back On Baileys well behind last time while Shamardyh has posted her best efforts so far over 6f. The Dandy Yank has only been placed in maiden races of late but is not easily dismissed off a 9lb lower mark than when last competing in a handicap.
