Verdict

It was soft ground when Ravenous finished third at Newbury in October and he's preferred to the more exposed Supersta and Full Day. Woodbridge looks his yard's first choice ahead of the newcomer Hesketh Bank and Aran Sky ran much better over today's trip on his debut than he did over 6f last time. Any strong support for Provident Spirit on his debut should be noted and That Is The Spirit is another debutant to keep an eye on. MARMOON was not given a hard time on his introduction at Newbury where he ran on for fourth behind a subsequent winner and Charlie Hills' colt gets the nod to open his account.
