ADOLFO has given the indication that he could relish this mile and a half trip after he produced late bursts in his improved recent performances. SMART DEAL seems to have put a disappointing period behind him and he can bounce right back to best with the aid of blinkers today. BORN RICH finished three parts of a length in front of the latter in a rain affected recent performance over this c & d and he could have a say. FLAPJACK has been slightly disappointing in recent starts despite finishing thereab- outs but the bay son of Await The Dawn could enjoy this rise in distance.
