In depth

Verdict

Blaklion can't be ignored after making an impressive start to his career under Rules at Ffos Las. Degooch finally got off the mark at Sedgefield last month while Beautiful Gem should improve on his fifth at Warwick. KWO NESHE's full brother Secrete Stream won a bumper at Kelso and developed into a decent hurdler. Malcolm Jefferson usually has his bumper horses ready and the son of Fruits Of Love can make a winning debut with fellow newcomers Howwrongcanyoube and Alysson Monterg also worth monitoring for market support.
