This may prove to be an informative maiden, though none of these have any fancy entries. Early Morning, placed twice at Sandown last year, is a bit more exposed than most and his future may line in handicaps. Loving Home will need to settle better than he did when third at Windsor but can't be ignored and Lingfield runner-up Gambol and the once-raced Hallbeck should appreciate this step up in trip. Reesha is another who should thrive over a longer distance and she'll have learned plenty from her debut at Kempton. Race To Glory cost £200,000 and is by Montjeu so will be expected to win races. Comedy King's purchase price was less than half of that but he's related to plenty of winner. CAPE CASTER is heading in the right direction and did nothing wrong when chasing home Hymenaois on his return at Doncaster - he wouldn't need to improve much on that to go one better here.
