In depth

Verdict

Zoom Zoom Babe came home nicely on debut and is a likely improver but the two with winning form set a strong standard here. Baby Zeus showed a determined attitude on debut over course and distance to inch out the long odds-on Arthur's Kingdom and will obviously progress from that outing but RAVEN'S CRY receives a valuable 5lb allowance and was going away at the finish when landing a strong maiden at the Galway Festival over 7f. The step up to a mile will suit and the form of that Galway contest was boosted when the third Helvic Dream went on to score easily at Roscommon this week.
