BALTIC BRAVE was closing rapidly on the winner in the closing stages over 6f here last time. It's worth chancing Hughie Morrison's charge will improve for the longer trip and he gets the nod. Penny's Boy posted a better effort last time when second at Kempton with Fiftyshadesfreed behind while both Syrian Pearl and Intense Feeling are recent course and distance winners. The former is less exposed and makes most appeal of that pair having finished four lengths ahead of the re-opposing Goodwood Storm.
