Rosebay Coral makes no appeal on the evidence of her debut effort and Dotesy looks beatable judged on her modest fourth at Pontefract last time. The Hooded Claw is related to a winner but has to give plenty of weight to stablemate Tears And Rain under today's conditions so fellow newcomer TALKSALOT gets the speculative vote. He's a half-brother to winning two-year-old On The Piste and Stan Moore's charge may well prove good enough in this company on his debut.
