SELBAAR made a winning handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time in first-time cheekpieces. He should cope with the drop back in trip and Chris Dwyer's colt can follow-up. Dressed In Lace tried making all on her nursery debut at Goodwood, but faded in the closing stages and may do better with less forceful tactics, while Roy's Legacy was beaten only a head in a handicap on testing ground at Newcastle earlier this month. Balm's third over C&D last month also brings her into the equation though she's disappointed since.
