All these inexperienced three-year-olds have shown promise and the outcome will be determined by their respective rates of progress, whilst both newcomers will require a market check. Prince Of Stars and COMPUTER came home fifth and seventh on debut in the Wood Ditton at the Craven meeting and there shouldn't be much between them now over an additional 2f. However, the latter may just offer a shade better value than the Gosden inmate and represents a yard that always targets this May meeting. It was only in the final furlong that the selection started to tire and is taken to step up now. Race To Glory and Obstinate were both promising on debut, likewise Ghosting who has a considerable absence to overcome though. Rangi Chase has form in the book and should be thereabouts but may find one or two progressing past him.
