132-rated hurdler has shown little in either Flat start and needs to step up considerably for the return to turf action.

Dansili colt out of a Group 3 winning mare who has shown little in either start 11 months apart. This may be the first time he has appeared when fully wound up so he is open to improvement.

Daughter of Evasive out of a mare who ran just once. Very green on first two starts and significant improvement required.

9/2

Pivotal filly whose dam was a decent staying handicapper at up to 1m6f. Looked green on last year's debut, but has obviously improved a lot for the experience judged on her comeback. May want further but still warrants consideration in a poor race.

Gelded since battling gamely to land a weak race at Chelmsford. Debut effort looks stronger form though and sets the standard reasonably high. Stable 11-32 here with their three-year-olds.

Camelot colt who fetched 82,000 gns as a yearling and is a brother to a winner over 1m. Has looked green on first two starts when beaten by wide margins. Can only improve, but this may come too soon.

Arvico filly out of a winning point-to-pointer who was placed over middle-distances on the Flat. Well beaten here on debut and hard to see her figuring this time too.

Poet's Voice filly with plenty of useful winners in her pedigree. Fetched a relatively modest €11,000 given the pedigree and a market check seems advisable.

Betting

Forecast

Motaraabet (5/6), Brasca (9/4), Goscote (9/2), Doune Castle (8/1), Voice Of Salsabil (16/1), And The New (25/1), Miss Harriett (66/1), Evadala (125/1)

Verdict

Goscote caught the eye with an improved display on her return and connections will surely have their patience repaid before too long. Motaraabet has had his problems, but looks set to lineup in better condition than for his first two outings. Voice Of Salasbil is interesting on pedigree, but BRASCA stands out given his yard's excellent record with three-year-olds here and a debut effort that would earn him a BHA rating in the mid-70s. That looks better than anything his rival's have achieved and he showed a good attitude to score subsequently when forced to make the running at Chelmsford.
