SKEAPING has much stronger form than Prosperitee, the only other runner with racecourse experience. Placed on his last couple of starts in higher-grade maidens, the Hannon colt is also preferred to stablemate and newcomer Kismet Hardy. Of the other first-timers, Thanksfortellingme is related to a winner and preferred to Hygrove Percy and Dark Avenue.
