SACHA PARK has been competing in much better company hence a handicap mark of 97. Richard Hannon's colt should be registering that elusive first win in this company. Rough Courte is a similar type but has a bit to find with the selection on today's terms though she's rated higher than both Bahamian C and The Hooded Claw. Alphabet Rap should go well judged on his debut third at Beverley while Galvanize, Royal Birth and My Inspiration are newcomers to note.
