Verdict

EXPENSIVE DATE ran well in a much better maiden contest than this at Newbury on her debut. Paul Cole's filly should be opening her account with normal progress. Amber Crystal looks next best on her third at Salisbury given Gregoria has plenty to find on the evidence of her debut sixth at Nottingham. Macarthurs Park ran well here in between a couple of poor efforts and is preferred to Itsindebag.
