Verdict

An open look to this maiden, where the tentative TEAMtalk vote goes to Easter Parade. Roger Charlton's filly ran well in a big field at Newmarket on her only racecourse appearance to date, earlier this month. With improvement expected and a step up in trip likely to suit, she can score. Of those with experience, Accentor was nothing special at Redcar first time out, but should again appreciate further and can improve here, while King Darshaan finished in eyecatching fashion over course and distance last time and should come on for that. He can be even more closely involved this time. Of the debutantes, the market will as usual give us a decent guide, but Flight Of Esteem comes from a family who have had two-year-old winners at this trip, as has Baraloti, who should need every yard of this trip, while Boing Boing's future is likely to be in sprints.
