Cranberry Ice appears to be improving, but only slowly, though still makes more appeal than stablemate Dingo Bay. Cavalier Spirit was well beaten on his debut at Ffos Las and none of the others with experience have shown much so far so we'll concentrate on the newcomers. Classic Rally is one to consider, being a full brother to winning hurdler Traffic Chaos, but Gonow is Flat-bred. But we prefer DOYLY CARTE who runs in the same colours as smart half-brother Dandino and, being a four-year-old filly, gets all the allowances.
