It's not a bad policy to follow Sir Mark Prescott's inmates when they begin to improve and, having scored here earlier in the month, we'll take WINDSHIELD to handle the step up in trip with very few reservations indeed. Epsom Salts is a thoroughly likeable individual and having gone well in the past under Jemma Marshall, he cannot be ruled out from running another solid race under a big weight. Underwritten was, however, ahead of him when they last met and the former John Weymes inmate proved that effort to be no fluke with a fair second on the Turf at Redcar. Any money for Greylyn Ruby would be significant with Silvestre De Sousa booked while Chesil Beach won a seller over 1m4f but now has a bit to prove.
