My Boy Paddy has been absent since October but is certainly respected on his half-length second at Carlisle in a higher grade. Dark Glacier was a very easy winner at Uttoxeter last month but is 13lb higher now while Incentivise is starting to look a light of former days. FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT has been dropped a few pounds since his latest run over a longer trip at Sandown, where he ran in snatches. A winner three times over this trip, David Pipe's charge faces his easiest task for some time and can concede weight all round as Union Jack D'Ycy was pulled up on his UK debut last month and still has to prove he stays this far. Present To You is on a decent mark at the moment and could be the pick of the remainder.
