YOU DA ONE found Milly's Gift too strong when odds-on for his Polytrack debut at Kempton but it's difficult imagining Andrew Balding's gelding will come up short against only two rivals here given he showed plenty of promise on Turf last year. Southwell third Red Star Lady is officially rated 32lb inferior to the selection while Spymistress ran green on her debut at Wolverhampton in December and may need more time.
You Da One 4-11fav (9-0) Tracked leader, led approaching 2f out, ridden and headed over 1f out, kept on and hung in behind winner towards finish, 2nd of 7, 1 1/2l behind Milly's Gift (8-9) at Kempton 6f mdn auc stks (6) pol.
