Bollihope, Dance Of Fire and Malimbi all represent high-class operations more than capable of readying one first time up but two of their rivals have already displayed form of considerable potential and maybe the pair to focus upon. Both Darshini and AZMAAM posted runner-up efforts of some distinction on debut in good-looking maidens over 7f on good to firm ground at Sandown and Newmarket respectively and both should improve for the experience under the tutelage of the Stoute and Hannon yards. Preference for the later is minimal. Landwade Lad also shaped quite pleasingly in a Newmarket maiden for James Fanshawe on debut and will progress from that promise.
