George Baker will be delighted to have acquired the services of Simon Walker for the three-year-old RED FOUR, who is one of the few here with a bit of scope and has dropped to a favourable mark. He gets the vote over Supa Seeker, whose only victory in 28 starts came on fast going though he ran well at Wolverhampton last time. Zinnobar has finished runner-up in sellers at Leicester and Warwick but this isn't much better and the main threat may emerge from Noosa Sound, still a maiden but producing slightly better efforts on her two latest starts.
