A very tricky end to proceedings. Flow may strip fitter for his reappearance at Newmarket but Kempton third Border Legend was well beaten on his only previous try over this longer trip. Broadway Duchess ran poorly off this mark when favourite at Sandown and was a long way behind runner-up Tinshu. The ground today may be too soft for the latter however. HUNTING RIGHTS came right back to form on a similar surface at Brighton and, though this is a lot more competitive and he has a penalty to carry, there may be more to come from Mark Johnston's gelding over this trip. He should give supporters a run for their money with Granell having his stamina to prove and Breaking The Bank possibly in the handicapper's grip now.
