Soft ground seems to make all the difference to SUMMERINTHECITY so Jeremy Noseda's unexposed charge is taken to follow up on his success last time. Progressive in his first three starts the colt seemed to lose his way after but a return to soft ground at Haydock saw him bounce back to form and with more likely he can improve to go in again. Fleeting Echo was successful on his only start at this track and he wasn't disgraced in listed company last time so is given a chance back in weighted company. Lochan Mor is consistent and while too high in the weights to win should be able to place off this rating. A tight looking race but Summerinthecity has scope for more.
