Verdict

Two Tykes has a tough task on his debut and Lady Frances finished last at Salisbury last time having won her maiden on the Polytrack. The remainder of the field all arrive on the back of victories with PENIAPHOBIA the speculative selection. He had a subsequent winner back in third when scoring at Ponterfact and gets the nod on that basis. Steventon Star got off the mark at the second time of asking at Windsor last time but Extortionist and Haikbidiac won their racecourse debuts in good style and make more appeal. One Boy and Innocently both scored over 5f at Redcar on their respective introductions with the former recording the faster time.
