Dic Turpin gelding who made very late racecourse debut just two weeks ago when tailed off last of nine at Ffos Las. Steps up in trip but is again likely to find this very tough.

£32,000 Arcano gelding related to a few decent winners. Makes racecourse bow here and unless the market suggests otherwise, is expected to be better for this initial experience.

Medicean gelding, a half-brother to two previous winners. Has hinted there may be some ability in two outings so far without getting involved. Drops back to 1m2f here and represents good yard so worth taking a glance.

Green as grass and tailed off last on debut in Newmarket maiden last autumn, but did better on only subsequent start when 15-length fourth in Doncaster soft ground 1m2f maiden in March. Not seen since, so quick ground might be a concern.

Home bred Style Vendome gelding makes his first racecourse appearance and may be better for the outing, although yard is in fair form and in a weak race he wouldn't have to be star material to make his presence felt.,

Daughter of Bated Breath, she is a half-sister to a Group 2 winner. Very green and well beaten on debut at Chelmsford five weeks ago, but did better when fifth on return visit there over a mile, staying on, so this longer trip should suit.

Fourth to subsequent Group 3 winner Soliloquy on debut at Newbury last September was a very promising effort, but absent 11 months before returning to finish second at Salisbury to long odds-on favourite. Has a touch of class and has leading claims.

Fine runner-up on October debut to subsequent listed placed performer, then beaten favourite but solid second to 99-rated winner at Chelmsford last month. Should win races and has every chance of doing so here.

Betting

Forecast

Spirit Of Appin (8/15), Respectable (5/2), Balaawy (5/1), La Bass (16/1), Kenny George (16/1), Highlife Flyer (20/1), Avlos (25/1), Croeso Cymraeg (33/1)

Verdict

With the exception of the unraced gelding La Bass, this race is really about the three fillies. RESPECTABLE is narrowly preferred to Spirit Of Appin and Balaawy, but there may not be too much between the trio, all of whom have shown plenty of promise on their limited racecourse appearances to date. Respectable's form in finishing fourth to the talented Soliloquy on debut last term is good, although the same can be said of Spirit Of Appin's second to Highgarden at Newbury last autumn.
