DASHING DOC has been progressing nicely and can find enough to break his maiden here, while Do More Business is the obvious danger. David Elsworth's colt hung a little at Newmarket last time but nonetheless showed improvement from his first run, and he should be primed and ready to earn his spurs today. Do More Business ran well enough in a Goodwood seller on debut, and with better to come today he looks likely to be very competitive. Mark Johnston saddles Epic, a Celtic Swing colt who is related to plenty of winners, some at this trip as juveniles, so there is plenty to suggest that he can make a good debut. Interakt ran plenty green enough until the penny dropped at Newbury on debut and trip and ground look ideal for now. Comedy Act is more likely to figure when it comes to handicapping and Dashing Doc is the one for us.
