The market is likely to indicate which of Tim Easterby's two newcomers, Dubai Destiny and Lady Advocate, is most forward. Michael Dods also introduces a couple of debutants while it would be no surprise to see a decent first effort from Tom Tate's Oasis Dream colt Keep Swinging. Red Duke ran a nice race when third at Pontefract and is open to further improvement, but so is COMICAL. The latter was slowly away and then ran green when fifth at York four weeks ago but was noted staying on well once the penny dropped and could progress enough to take this.
