REBEL SOLDIER BOY couldn't quite get to Modular Magic at Redcar but showed good pace and stayed on so this stiffer track and much softer conditions should play to his strengths. Able Kane was a 50/1 chance on his debut but showed potential and started favourite at Salisbury where he couldn't find a finishing burst on the soft ground. Knock Knock attracted support at Wolverhampton and, though well beaten, is expected to do better while Capla Spirit made a promising debut here before finding 6f at Ascot too much for him. Local handler Declan Carroll gets plenty of winners here and Secret Diary's dam has produced winners with her first three foals to race.
