Race Verdict

The market is likely to shed some light on the chances of the debutants, but BLACK MONK can benefit from a previous run and is taken to open his account at the second attempt. Pat Dobbs didn't give the son of Dark Angel a hard time when he dropped the whip at Nottingham last month and it was encouraging that the juvenile got so close to Dreamy Ciara under a hands-and-heels drive. Windhoek made 110,000gns at the sales last October and is expected to go well first time out, while Ralph Beckett's Notnowcato colt Day In Day Out could also run a big race on his introduction.

Selection: Black Monk        Danger: Windhoek        Alternative: Day In Day Out
