Race Verdict

The market should provide useful clues regarding the newcomers, both of whom represent yards more than capable of readying one first time. Surely Speightful is preferred to Malilla and hails from a yard that has enjoyed success here with its raids from the north. However, GRAPHIC QUEST made a very pleasing debut behind Tassel at Newmarket and the recent Chester success of the runner-up, All Fur Coat, gives the form a healthy sheen. She receives the vote whilst Steer By The Stars will improve from a solid Pontefract debut on very testing ground.

Selection: Graphic Guest        Danger: Surely Speightful        Alternative: Steer By The Stars
