Amadeus Denton rallied close home to land the odds at Doncaster last month and had gone close over C&D before that, while any more rain would suit Risky Art, who scored on easy ground at Carlisle on her debut. However, NAGHAM won a better grade maiden against more experienced opponents on her racecourse debut at Leicester and normal improvement can see her register a quick double on today's card for trainer Kevin Ryan. Ponty Acclaim has gone backwards since making a winning debut but there should be more to come from Catterick runner-up Slenningford.
