DOWNTOWN BOY has only run four times on Polytrack and has improved with every outing. He was far from disgraced off his new mark here last month after winning at the track on his return to action and looks the one to beat. Angelena Ballerina and Jordaura are both course and distance winners with the former looking the pick of the pair on recent form. The Yank's third at Kempton came over a longer trip, however, while Just Five has been on the downgrade for a while despite a recent second at the track.
