Tussie Mussie showed virtually nothing until making her nursery debut on Fibresand at Southwell where she narrowly defeated Relight My Fire with the remainder well beaten. She can continue on the upgrade and go well. Blue Lotus looked a very speedy performer until meeting fast ground at York where he finished virtually tailed off. He's yet to race over this trip but is better than he showed last time. Capo Rosso scored nicely at Wolverhampton but the assessor looks to have been harsh in allotting him a mark of 78 while Mandy Lexi was a big disappointment when favourite for a nursery here last month. SEJALAAT has had three runs in maidens and makes his handicap bow. John Dunlop's colt has plenty of pace in his pedigree and has shown enough to suggest he can get off the mark before going on to better things.
