    Verdict

    Big Sky raids from Newmarket after shaping quite well on debut at Goodwood but that form has yet to be franked. Presumably connections feel he'll be better served by this stiff, galloping track. Richard Fahey launches a triple assault and it may be significant that Tony Hamilton opts to ride the newcomer Kiri Sunrise in preference to Sunnua and Canford Kilbey, both of whom fared quite well on debut. Midnight Malibu and Tweetheart should also progress from initial experiences but DAWAA improved noticeably from her debut when a green-to-post solid second last time at Newcastle and just about sets the standard in an interesting maiden.
