YORK GLORY looks a little more straightforward than many of his rivals and had no problem with the switch to turf when finding only Palais Glide too good at Nottingham last month. He can return to winning ways here though Moral Issue is rarely far away and should find a similar race soon. Eshoog has shown her best form over this trip and looked to be coming to hand when fifth at Kempton. She may prove best of the rest as Celtic Sixpence and Defence Council have both been a little disappointing lately and Breezolini would probably prefer a bit more give in the ground.
