This looks a match between Daylight and EXTRASOLAR. The former hasn't raced since beaten three lengths on his debut at Goodwood last July and the latter makes more appeal. Amanda Perrett's charge just failed to catch the winner at Salisbury last week and a similar effort should see him go one better in this company. The remainder have yet to show any worthwhile form although Kaahen has had just the one start and can only improve on his tailed off last at Yarmouth.
