Just Past Andover has plenty to prove on his return to action as his form went to pieces after scoring at Yarmouth in May. He's best watched on this occasion and WINDFORPOWER makes more appeal. Ron Harris' charge is holding his form well and beat Princess Cammie over track and trip last month having earlier finished ahead of Marmot Bay when runner-up at this track. He looks the one to beat on that evidence.
