Response has been knocking on the door in similar company but looks a bit one-paced and it would be no surprise if he found at least one too good again here. Bordah and Bourbon both have scope, the latter having his first start for the Johnston yard after leaving Godolphin. But connections must have been delighted with SPIRIT OF RIO's first run back at Doncaster following a year on the sidelines. He wasn't given a hard race and can show the benefit here to land this for an in-form stable. Ed Dunlop's newcomer Bold Citizen could prove the pick of the remainder.
