BLUFF CRAG won over course and distance in August, better than his final finishing position suggested last time on his first run for a new yard. He didn’t get a clean run there but shaped as if capable of progression in new hands. Bristol Missile produced a career best on the Polytrack last time out when dropped to a mile. If the blinkers he wore for the first time there have the same effect, he is the biggest danger. In The Red would be the one to beat if one could take his last run at face value while Shadow Warrior produced a smart effort last time dropped to this trip.
