Verdict

Nadmah is the first foal of a 2m winner and worth a second glance in the betting on her racecourse debut but SOLACE looks a safer bet. She went close at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago and today's longer trip will suit John Gosden's filly. Ray Ward and Moscow Circus attracted some interest on their respective debuts but neither looked like winning. Improvement is expected from that pair while Dali's Lover could also go well on her Polytrack debut and first start since September.
