      In depth


      My Motivate Girl has failed to show the progress expected having placed on her first couple of outings and looked to have no excuses at Leicester last time. Ossco and Zain Storm posted much better efforts on their latest starts when placed over track and trip with the former making most appeal favoured by an apprentice’s allowance but it could pay to side with HARD NUT. The latter was beaten a couple of lengths in soft ground at Windsor on his recent debut but a winner has already come out of the race and this faster surface should suit the Hannon colt. Exciting Days is related to winners on Dirt while Thomas Lanfiere is a half-brother to a couple of winners and both are newcomers to note.
