Safari Storm represents a yard whose juveniles regularly showed improved form after their racecourse debuts last term and it would be no surprise to see this fellow do likewise. He stayed on steadily behind King Of The Shadows in a typical Windsor maiden and should appreciate this stiff five furlongs. Sweet Chilli and Nellie Pickersgill also showed enough on their respective debuts to indicate their turn will come, but it might be worth taking a chance with Lambourn newcomer, BRIMSTONE HILL. Barry Hills has enjoyed a 25 per cent strike rate here over the past five years and the yard has made a solid start to the new campaign. Market support would obviously increase confidence.
