In depth


Sir Maximilian attempted to make all at Yarmouth but had no answer when Jocasta Dawn went past. That was only his second start and, with further progress likely, he looks certain to get involved. Miss Noble could make no impression on Furbelow at Kempton and will need to do better and Nevaeh will be having her first start on turf. SHOW FLOWER ran in better company last season and showed that she had trained on with a promising comeback at Thirsk where she would have finished much closer but for being impeded at a crucial stage. She can take this as Tahnee Mara didn't look suited by soft ground on her reappearance at Nottingham.
