LAST ORDERS could be the one to side with on debut although Tom Folan and Desert Storm set a fair level for the newcomers to aim at. It may or may not prove to be relevant but Mick Quinlan and Alan Munro teamed up to land this race with the useful Langs Lashes last season and it will be interesting to see if Last Orders is backed to follow up. Desert Auction has run sound enough races in maidens won by fair sorts and has an obvious chance of opening his account whilst Tom Folan has also shown a decent level of form in making the frame at this track and at Beverley. Angie's Nap represents respected connections whilst cheap purchase Safari Special is related to winners and bred to be speedy and both need to be monitored in the market but we'll take Last Orders to follow in the footsteps of his stablemate.
