SHORE STEP improved to finish third at Bath last time without threatening the winner. It was soft ground, however, and on that basis he's just preferred to Forbidden Fruit. The latter has shown steady progress, culminating in a fourth on the Polytrack, though was well beaten in testing ground on his debut. Wotalad has a bit of catching up to do but Truth Hurts is related to three winners including a Graded winner in America and may prove best of the newcomers.
