Sir Mark Prescott has a fine strike rate here but newcomer Inherited may be better when taking on longer trips. Red Gift improved to finish third at Beverley last time and steps up a furlong but Jumeirah Moon moves in the opposite direction having shown promise in a couple of starts over 7f. Precision Strike should improve again and Ace Pearl was beaten four lengths over 5f here on his debut. RELIGHT MY FIRE went close over C&D last month and as that was his best effort to date, he's taken to put that experience to good use and come out best here.
