Verdict

Line D'Aois looks the obvious one here having finished second over course and distance on his debut under Rules, though Abel J Tasman only found one too good at Sedgefield in August. Dunkirk's First and Vodka Moon are probable improvers while Mr Kealshore is possibly the most interesting of the newcomers to racing. But SHINE A DIAMOND is expected to pay his way after winning a point-to-point at Bartlemy in May by 10 lengths - he gets the vote.
