In an average looking maiden Mark Johnston's BOWDLER'S MAGIC looks to have an obvious chance after much progression from his first to second run while John Gosden's pair of newcomers Senate and Riccoche look interesting. The pick followed a fairly average debut with a much better run when introduced to this track last time where he found just one too good. He was caught late on during that run so this step down in trip looks a plus. Senate represents some powerful connections and looks bred to find some success as a youngster. This trip looks about right and a big first run is not out of the question. Riccoche gets a filly's allowance and is related to a few high class types in France. Her pedigree suggests she'll need further in time and may be better as a three-year-old but this race isn't the strongest so she can go close. Jazz Age has the benefit of a solid first outing so should come on for that but after showing good progression in two starts so far Bowdler's Magic should improve again and score.
