Morrooj and Alamora finished fourth on their respective debuts in separate divisions of the same race over 7f at Kempton. Both showed enough promise to suggest they can figure in the finish over this longer trip but SALSADA is taken to edge affairs. The latter found only one too good in what looked a tougher novices' race over track and trip last month and may prove good enough. The Mackem Missile is related to five winners and preferred to Scherzo and Party Planner of the newcomers.
