Ralph Beckett is in better form after a quiet seasonal opening and the yard should enjoy an improved second half of the campaign. His Intikhab filly, MOONE'S MY NAME, has shown up well on each start but has simply found something too good each time. She's sure to go well and can gain a well deserved success with trip and ground to suit. Escape To Glory has been comprehensively beaten despite being placed on both outings but should progress on his first attempt at this trip, whilst Sole Danser and Chokidar have shown sufficient to merit consideration. Godolphin failed to eke a win out of expensive purchase Greek Islands in a frustrating juvenile campaign and it will be interesting to see if new trainer Ed De Giles can do better having picked him up at last year's sales for £4,000.
