Charles Messier has shown the most of those with racecourse experience finishing fourth at Musselburgh on his debut. He ran green on that occasion but looks sure to improve, while Ocean Sheridan was still beaten a long way when third on his introduction over 5f here. But ARABIAN BRIDE may well be good enough to score at the first time of asking as she can include the profilic Rasaman among her winning relatives. Fellow newcomer Fugleman is a half-brother to Listed winner Mrs Kipling and is another to note in the betting.
