Bold Spirit showed good pace for a long way at Ascot and will have come on enormously for the experience. Meeting Waters made a fine start at Sandown where she stayed on strongly but then found Salisbury's 5f too short. This should be more like it and she's a threat as is Classic Pursuit as he made great strides from his opening run to chase home Trading Profit here a fortnight ago. Autopilot made a bright start over the course and distance before a very disappointing effort at Wolverhampton. GENEROUS HEART earns a speculative vote on her debut as she's the seventh foal of a mare who has already produced five winners including the useful Leitrim House, a winner over this trip as a juvenile.
