Size was engaged to run at Ripon yesterday but has to come into the reckoning if taking part. In his absence, AMAZING BLUE SKY makes most appeal as Ruth Carr's charge finally showed some improvement for his tumble down the weights when beaten only a length at Beverley last week. He's fancied to reverse running with runner-up Miss Ella Jade and is preferred to Barton Bounty, whose recent victory at Ayr came in lesser company. Destination Aim showed a bit more at Carlisle last time and looks a bigger threat off his current mark than the thoroughly exposed Tinseltown.
