MERSIN took a big step forwards when only beaten a length into second at Newbury last month and that form was boosted when the third won next time out. A reproduction of that performance today would give the son of Invincible Spirit a big chance. Red Missile merits respect now that he returns to maiden company in first-time cheekpieces, while Tao Te Ching and Nevendon are the pick of the remainder.
