It would be no surprise if either Saranta or Blue Sonic ran well on their handicap debuts. Torridon is another with a shout having gone close over a mile at Hamilton last time. SECRET CITY has less obvious claims as he's yet to win over further than 6f. But he made the frame over today's trip at Catterick last time and started this season on a 10lb higher mark. It could just be his turn today with Starlite Jewel possibly best of the rest.
