Cards and Molly Ahoy can only improve from their respective debut efforts at Wolverhampton when both were well beaten. Neither Soul Artist or Samoan have shown any form worthy of a mention so far, but On Demand is getting steadily closer and found only one too good over track and trip a fortnight ago. She should be thereabouts again, though CLOVERDALE won't need to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning debut and the half-sister to a winner on the all-weather gets the vote.
