Afleet Ascent is arguably better than he showed in a stakes contest at Golden Gate Fields last time and is expected to take closer order, though, in truth, this race revolves around European import MOVE OVER and whether he is ready to do himself justice on his US bow. Colonel Cash looks best of the rest.
