Sky Garden showed real potential in her opening campaign but, so far this season, hasn't made the expected progress. Shillito has looked like winning on several occasions but is still a maiden after 11 starts while Red Red Wine is taking a massive drop in trip having raced over 1m2f last time. DISCUSSIONTOFOLLOW was obviously expected to make a winning debut at Redcar as he started a short-priced favourite but faded in the closing stages over that 7f trip. He should have learned plenty from the experience and compensation awaits. Jiminy has a very smart sprinter's pedigree and is one to keep an eye on as he makes his debut.
