Blue Sea is progressing slowly but surely and never looked in any real danger when losing his maiden tag a couple of weeks ago. Double Bass started off in the UK before heading for the USA where he appeared to improve on Dirt while his stable also run Roayh, who was just a moderate handicapper in the UK but has dropped to a very lenient mark. Count Paris is a reliable type who has been going well over 7f though he rarely runs over today's trip and is very closely matched with Furnace on last month's run as is MARK TO MARKET. The latter was staying on very well when a close third that day and also when just behind Busker over this C&D two weeks ago. He's won over the C&D in the past and is handed the vote though Energia El Gigante, who started life in Brazil before transferring to Germany, is a very interesting entry at the foot of the handicap.
