Rapscallion Deep is easily the best of those with experience. He came in for some support on his debut at Lingfield and ran well enough for fourth behind Staffhos. The latter is trained by Mark Johnston who runs the newcomer ALWAYS FABULOUS in this. She's a half-sister to six winners and may well be good enough on her debut. Fellow debutant Little Dolly is also related to a winner and she could prove better than the remainder unless So Vain and Arabougg show a big improvement on the form of their recent debuts.
