Race Verdict

Secret Destination sets the standard with her two silver medals at Southwell but she was well beaten on her sole turf outing so preference is for TEAM CHALLENGE. The selection left his debut well behind when a good third over this C&D last week and there should be more to come. Tim Easterby's other runner, Bachotheque, looks the pick of the newcomers and it will be interesting to see how he fares in the betting market in relation to his stablemate.

Selection: Team Challenge        Danger: Secret Destination        Alternative: Bachotheque
