QUIET WARRIOR went close to making a winning debut when runner-up over 7f here three weeks ago. He'll have come on for that and can go one better. Perfect Pursuit also made the frame at this track last time though her debut effort at Bath remains her best effort so far. The remainder with experience make no appeal but Why Not Now, a half-sister to the smart Definightly, and Disco Dale, related to the high-class Red Cadeaux, are newcomers to note.
