DISTANT HIGH was slowly away over 7f here last month but kept on steadily over the final quarter-mile. That was her first start so she's entitled to improve and she has much more scope than her rivals. Kisanji is the highest rated and is another eased in grade but it's impossible to have much faith in Galaxy nowadays while Lady Red Oak appears to have gone backwards this year. Kirkstall Abbey may be the pick of the remainder as she wasn't beaten far dropped into this grade at Redcar on her comeback.
