Mountain Kingdom stepped up to 1m5f at Lingfield and though runner-up to Daydreamer he was beaten a long way. It's likely he'll improve again and the same remark applies to Needless Shouting, who made all over this trip at Sandown and looks a thorough stayer. He hasn't been hit too hard in the ratings with just a 5lb rise but it's about time WALL STREET BOSS was winning on Turf and this looks his chance now stepping up to what should prove a more suitable trip. The Ducking Stool loves this track and is the only course and distance winner in the line-up so shouldn't be discounted.
