John Quinn’s charge was last seen over hurdles at the Cheltenham Festival, when he finished a creditable eighth in the Fred Winter after enjoying no sort of luck in running.

Look My Way had previously finished a decent eight-length second to Apple’s Shakira and he did manage a win at Ludlow in January, but it is his previous Flat form for Andrew Balding that offers most encouragement.

A 22-length winner at Ffos Las last September before being sold, he also turned in some good efforts at a decent level through last summer, which saw him rise from a starting point of 62 to his current rating of 90.

Bombyx has some big-race options this term and victory in the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup British EBF Conditions Stakes would surely put him in the mix for a Classic trial.

James Fanshawe thought enough of his charge to give him Dante and Derby entries and that looks reasonable enough based on what he showed in two juvenile starts last year.

Blue De Vega can finally complete his transition to sprinter with victory in the Dubai Duty Free Handicap.

Third in the Irish 2,000 Guineas a couple of years ago, Robert Cowell is now following the speedsters’ trail with the five-year-old and he is starting to shape up a bit now.
