Bred to excel at middle-distances, the step up to 1m2f on Town Moor was the obvious step forward and, very well backed, the Australia colt travelled superbly and kept on powerfully in the manner of a smart horse. The form of the race is looking rock solid with the second and fourth winning since, the runner-up Telecaster impressively by nine lengths at Windsor.
Bangkok was allocated a mark of 88 at the end of last season but he looks way better than that and has entries in the Dante and the Derby to aim at, with a price of 40-1 in the latter potentially looking very big come the end of this contest.
Bangkok 2pt win @ 6-5
Despite defeat, it was a step in the right direction and hopefully he will sit handy this afternoon and be well placed to strike in this competitive heat.
Reggae Runner 1pt win @ 3-1
Reeves 1pt win @ 12-1
Sandown should suit and with just eight runners expected to go to post, the selection can boss this race and maintain his 100% record in Group 2s.
Beat The Bank 1pt win @ 11-4
