Formscan - Persian Time made a pleasing start to his Rules career when securing a two-length victory on his most recent run over an extended 1m7f at Ascot last November and is expected to be thereabouts, but GINNY'S DESTINY is favoured having lost little in defeat when runner-up in Grade 2 territory last time out. He bolted up on his penultimate outing in over 2m5f at Warwick and can bounce back to winning form now back down in grade. Rare Edition is another to bear in mind seeking a fifth consecutive win.
