In depth

Verdict

Ghanaian ended last season with a second in a competitive nursery at Newmarket and stablemate Elnadwa scored at Wolverhampton in October. But both are making their seasonal debuts today and RUSSIAN ROYALE may have the beating of them on this occasion. She made a winning return over 6f here last month giving the impression today's trip would suit and Stuart Kittow's filly gets the vote. Perfect Haven ran a shocker at Newbury last time while Secretly has yet to match last year's debut effort at the same track in a couple of subsequent starts. This Is Nice finally opened her account in a Brighton maiden and will find this much tougher.
