Saeed Bin Suroor can boast an excellent strike rate with two-year-old runners at this track and I'M BACK looks to have every chance. He had plenty of previous winners behind when scoring at Newmarket last time and Darren Egan's claim allows him to race off a lower mark today. Luck came up against the subsequent Gimcrack fifth at Ripon and can figure on his handicap bow while it's too soon to write off Salisbury winner Waterway Run, a beaten favourite on her latest start. Winged Icarus dotted up on the Fibresand last time but has something to prove back on this surface while Old Man Clegg and Asgardella make most appeal of the remainder.
