Verdict

Orions Hero was unfancied on fast going at Ayr last time but only lost out by the narrowest of margins. He's capable of going one better but today's slower ground is a worry and a chance is taken on the newcomer BRAVO RAGAZZO. He's a brother to a duel winner and a half-brother to three others and the Pivotal colt may well be good enough to score on his debut. Miss Mocca showed some ability on her first start as did Alkcama but both will need a big step forward to come out best.
