FOXY CLARETS has by far the best form of those with experience and a chance is taken he'll act in soft going. Well beaten in much better company last time, a repeat of his debut third over track and trip should see Richard Fahey's colt off the mark. Thornaby Princess never threatened when placed on her introduction over 5f but this extra distance will suit and she's preferred to Shyron and The Doyle Machine. No Leaf Clover cost 65,000 euros and could prove best of the newcomers.
