Pencombe and Good Evans are expected to improve and on their debut efforts whiel Naru carries the first colours of his owner ahead of stablemate Masaadr. OFCOURSEWECAN was sent off favourite for his racecourse debut over a shorter trip here but never figured. Jockey bookings suggest he's preferred to stablemate and newcomer Moscow Circus and Mark Johnston's colt gets a chance to make amends. Shockingdancer and Triple Aitch are worth noting in the betting on their introductions.
