In depth


The newcomer Veturia has no easy task up against a quartet of winning debutants but an entry in the Lowther Stakes suggests she's held in some regard. Richard Fahey won this with subsequent Group 1 winner Wooten Bassett in 2010 and UNSINKABLE made an impressive debut at Newcastle three weeks ago when strolling to a four length victory. He's got no fancy entries so far but is just preferred to Elle Woods, who also scored at Newcastle in a race that is working out well and Tickle Time, who beat a subsequent winner at Ayr on his introduction. Secret Look opened his account over 5f at Haydock but is not easily dismissed either in an intriguing, if difficult to call, contest.
