Richard Fahey has won this twice in the last five years so his newcomer Devious Spirit has to be worth a second look. He's a half-brother to three-times winner Moonspring but it's difficult to get away from BRIGHT FLASH. David Brown's Dutch Art filly made a very promising debut in what looked a hot maiden at Goodwood and will know more now. Denton Carnival should be suited by the step up in trip but Lord Of Words was beaten 10 lengths when fourth at Newcastle last time and Dynamite Inventor and What Could She Be are probably best watched today.
