Thrilled To Bits ran her first two races in Listed company but didn't improve when fancied for a Sligo maiden later. She's 5lb out of the handicap while Invisible Flash has a couple of pounds to make up though it was a surprise to see her dropped in the weights after a decent effort at Tipperary. Persian Caliph got his act together on Polytrack, winning a 6f maiden before landing a tough nursery in September. Further progress will see him difficult to beat but DANEHILL BROOK may have his measure. David Wachman's colt finished last on his debut, though that was at Group 3 level, before landing a Down Royal maiden in good style.
