GHOST RUNNER has been making steady progress and reappeared with a comfortable maiden success at Windsor over Da Do Run Run, who subsequently landed a Lingfield maiden comfortably. Sir Henry Cecil's colt should improve again and can take care of Granell, an impressive maiden winner here three weeks ago when Quadriga was almost six lengths behind. Corn Snow could need a bit further and Country Western looks a few pounds high in the weights after completing a double early in the season.
