RING FOR BAILEYS won his maiden over C&D last month with three lengths to spare. Chris Dwyer's charge can make a winning handicap debut with further progress likely. Persidha made a winning return to action at Lingfield but his looks tougher while Tiablo's recent victory came in plating company over 6f and J J Leary may also need an extra furlong to show his best. Chateau Lola finally got off the mark at Southwell last time and is up 3lb in the weights but Dark Ages may be better for the outing.
