Verdict

Buy Nice Not Twice and Pearl Beach were both well beaten over today’s trip on their respective debuts while Bermuda Schwartz never figured over 6f at Newbury on his introduction. Goodwood Rebel gave the impression this longer trip would suit when staying on for second at Salisbury though it was soft ground on that occasion and one of the newcomers is preferred. Alpinista is bred for further but FLASHING APPROACH can include a Listed winner among his winning relatives and may prove good enough at the first time of asking given Mark Johnston has trained three of the last six winners of this.
