Plenty with claims but punters can only guess as to which one of these will show the most improvement. The speculative choice is DON'T STARE as he finished ahead of a subsequent winner when third at Yarmouth on his debut. Ruffled and Noble Protector also made promising introductions at Newmarket and Salisbury respectively while Catch The Cider was surrounded by subsequent winners when runner-up on his debut at Wolverhampton last season. Dambuster drops back in trip and Severiano is another hard to dismiss as he attempts an extra furlong. Evermore and Sagesse are newcomers to keep an eye on in the betting.
