The newcomers, all hailing from strong juvenile operations, must be carefully monitored in the market. A chance is taken with ALASKAN NIGHT from the Kevin Ryan team as it is normally at this time of year that the stable produces a few two-year-olds likely to be Royal Ascot bound. Lack of market confidence would temper enthusiasm somewhat but he makes most appeal on paper. Kirtling Belle has by far the best form of the pair to have run and the Coyle stable posted a recent juvenile winner. She receives a handy 5lb sex allowance and also has the benefit of experience when a staying-on runner-up behind Innocently on her Redcar debut. She should come on for the run and a sound effort is anticipated. Suzi's Connoisseur and Meadway are of obvious interest, debuting for Mark Johnston and Bryan Smart respectively.
