BLUE WAVE showed a big improvement to finish second behind stablemate Timoneer at Newmarket a fortnight ago. The Raven's Pass colt may be capable of better over this longer trip and should have no trouble shrugging off any challenge from the others with experience. The newcomer Man From Seville may prove harder to beat though as he cost 120,000gns and hails from an in-form yard while better is expected from Shiatsu as he'll find this easier than the Ascot maiden he contested on his debut. Lord Of Leitrim showed some ability on his debut over 7f here and could be thereabouts.
