Verdict

Point Made, Biba Diva and Royal Reyah arrive on the back of maiden victories and step up a furlong for their handicap debuts. The Blue Banana went close in a better nursery than this at Doncaster last month and looks to have solid claims, but POETIC LORD is just preferred. He didn't let his supporters down when well backed on his handicap debut at Lingfield and Richard Hughes takes over from Dane O'Neill, with the latter now riding stablemate Dixie's Dream. The former can follow-up despite racing off a higher mark today.
