Eluding and Dulkashe showed enough in their first campaigns to suggest they will be winning soon while Corsetry will be better for her run at Salisbury where she found the 1m4f stretching her stamina. Rythmic didn't enjoy the heavy ground at Pontefract and has slipped to a decent mark while Al Jabreiah stayed on very strongly to score over 1m1f at Wolverhampton and with further progress guaranteed will be a danger to all. Shannon Spree made a reasonable reappearance at Salisbury and looks well enough treated to give a good account but a chance is taken with SYMPHONY STAR. Paul D'Arcy won this in 2010 and his filly, who was very highly tried in her first season, makes her handicap debut with a low weight and didn't enjoy Polytrack on her reappearance at Wolverhampton.
