No chance with the winner but stayed on well to take second. Original quote: "Third run after being gelded over the winter. Took a step forward last time out at Kempton when a much better 4th (of 13) and that came after not getting a clear run too. Well at home and freshened up with around 4 weeks off. Trip, ground and track are all fine and if taking another leap forward here must have fair e/w claims in what looks an open affair."
