The newcomer Severiano has already been gelded and will probably need further than this on pedigree. But BRIGHT STRIKE sets a decent standard on his three runs on Turf last year, which included a second at Newbury in September when sent off a well-backed favourite. He should open his account today. Half Turn was a well-beaten last of three on his debut over a mile here 12 days ago and neither he nor One Dark Night should be good enough in this.
Brigade (IRE) Mujadil colt out of Ela Tina.
Bright Strike (USA) 5-4fav (9-3) Keen hold early and soon with leader, led 5f out, ridden and headed over 1f out, stayed on same pace, no impression, kept on for clear 2nd, 2nd of 18, 2 1/4l behind Race And Status (9-3) at Newbury 7f 2yo mdn (4) gf in Sep.

One Dark Night 33-1 (8-10) Akwardly away keen towards rear, short of room and dropped to rear over 4f out, never a factor, last of 7, 13l behind Great Demeanor (8-10) at Lingfield 7f mdn stks (5) pol in Feb.
