In depth

Verdict

Perfect Muse is related to prolific winner Perfect Silence and could prove too good for most of these on her debut with the exception of RED VALERIAN. He was unfancied at Kempton last time but ran well for second and had a horse rated 77 back in third. Charlie Hills' colt should be opening his account in this company with a similar effort. The remainder have it all to do with the likes of Gold Weight and It Ain't To Grand possibly improving past the thoroughly exposed Island Express.
