Jumbo Steps has his first start for Jim Goldie but did win a couple of times in Ireland. However, it's stablemate THORNTOUN LADY who is more interesting as she was lightly-raced last season and reappears on a fair mark. Patrona Ciana won in France around this time last year and could also go well on her first start of the season but the others have plenty to prove.
