VOLITO won well over this course and distance last week and he is taken to score again at the main expense of Plumage and West Leake. The selection looks to be coming to himself on the evidence of his win last time when he scored going away from Oriental Rose. He looks an improving sort and it should pay to stick with this colt. Plumage has gone close on both of her starts this season, latterly when chasing home Luminous Gold at Yarmouth. She has got some solid form but it is a slight concern that she has yet to get her head in front in 11 outings. West Leake won well at Southwell before finishing third behind Taurus Twins here last month. He is clearly capable of getting competitive off his current mark and he is respected. David Nicholls does well with his sprinters so Circuit Dancer could go well at a price, but a safer bet is Volito who gets our vote.
