FULL DAY has a penalty to carry but she overcame inexperience to win well on her hurdling debut at Newton Abbot and the runner-up went on to score by eight lengths at Cartmel. Al Musheer won a minor contest on the Flat at Royan in the spring and will have been well schooled. He looks a bigger danger than Aldreth, Dover The Moon and Coastal Storm, who were all modest on the level.
