Verdict

Darsan may have improved since her latest start in November and could figure on her debut at this track, while Diva Donkey should finish closer this time after her fifth over C&D in December. Profile Storm is worth noting on his debut although breeding suggests he may need a longer trip to show his best and preference is for fellow newcomer COLOUR GUARD. The four-year-old is making his belated debut today and has clearly had his problems, but the 50,000gns gelding is a half-brother to seven winners and can start making up for lost time by taking this.
