DISCREETLY and Halation look the two to consider with preference for the former. She made a very encouraging debut behind Cape Icon at Nottingham where she stayed on nicely once getting the hang of things. Further progress looks assured and she can get the better of Marco Botti's charge, who couldn't hold the strong late burst of Reedcutter on the Polytrack at Lingfield. The remainder with experience look a poor bunch so Keith Reveley's newcomer Beaulie, whose dam has produced winners with her first three foals, is taken for the minor place.
