Verdict

RED CONNECT is the only one with form in the book but experience is frequently proven to be crucial at this stage of the season and Silvestre De Sousa is a good booking for a yard that began the week with a couple of winners. The selection progressed nicely from his first run and has bagged an ideal draw from which to maximise his experience. British Art is interesting, having been dispatched from Whatcombe for this racecourse debut, whilst Montefalcon, Juventas, Firgrove Bridge and Red Icon all represent yards perfectly capable of readying a newcomer. Tim Easterby also unveils a couple but none of the first-timers have any especially fancy entries.
