made it a perfect 5 wins from 5 starts in a career that's barely more than 4 months old, that record including 2 of the season's most prestigious sprint handicaps, the first 3-y-o since to win this one since 2002, and it was his most professional display yet, learning by the run and with all the tools to go on and make his mark in pattern races, no telling where his limit might be given the remarkable rate of his run-to-run progress so far; close up, travelled better than last time, challenged 2f out, edged ahead final 1f, stayed on strongly, going away from the placed horses at the line; his trainer suggested he'll be put away for the season and the future is obviously very bright, with 7f still to try.

belatedly confirmed himself a smart performer, putting up a career best in nearly bagging a second big Scottish sprint handicap of the season; close up, upsides 2f out, every chance well inside final 1f, stuck to task; he goes well on soft ground and should be set for a good autumn.

Overrounds: Industry SP 141%, Betfair SP 100.8%

A cracking field for one of the season's top sprint handicaps, a BHA mark of 97 necessary just to get a run, and the unbeaten winner is about as exciting a prospect as the race has seen in recent memory, well up to holding his own in pattern races in due course, that a signigificant proportion of those in behind gave their running in a soundly-run race suggesting the form is rock-solid; all bar Tanzeel and Red Pike raced up the centre and track position didn't have much of an impact, though a handful were pushed towards the far rail in the last 1f, which may not have been ideal.

DON'T TOUCH made it a perfect 5 wins from 5 starts in a career that's barely more than 4 months old, that record including 2 of the season's most prestigious sprint handicaps, the first 3-y-o since to win this one since 2002, and it was his most professional display yet, learning by the run and with all the tools to go on and make his mark in pattern races, no telling where his limit might be given the remarkable rate of his run-to-run progress so far; close up, travelled better than last time, challenged 2f out, edged ahead final 1f, stayed on strongly, going away from the placed horses at the line; his trainer suggested he'll be put away for the season and the future is obviously very bright, with 7f still to try.

POYLE VINNIE belatedly confirmed himself a smart performer, putting up a career best in nearly bagging a second big Scottish sprint handicap of the season; close up, upsides 2f out, every chance well inside final 1f, stuck to task; he goes well on soft ground and should be set for a good autumn.

BUCKSTAY (IRE) ran a cracker on his first try at 6f, having run over as far as 1½m previously, coping well enough with the shorter trip, albeit with a really strong final 1f that suggests a return to further won't do him any harm; held up, headway entering final 1f, finished fast; there's no faulting his record, most consistent, and he'll continue to run well.

ASTROPHYSICS without a tongue strap this time, again finished well held back from 4 months off and isn't one to be interest in until he shows more; in touch, ridden 2f out, weakened final 1f.

RED PIKE (IRE) was well held, sticking to the stand rail and beaten a long way out; raced stand side, led group, beaten 2f out.

SOUND ADVICE ran badly, tackling 6f for the first time but beaten far enough out to think the trip wasn't the issue; close up, dropped away soon after halfway.
