Verdict

Knightcap has been showing good pace before fading and wasn't headed until inside the final furlong when tackling 6f at Redcar. MY MOTIVATE GIRL hasn't been beaten far in any of her five races to date and looks best of those with experience though Requiems Dream ran well for a long way on ground with some give at Carlisle. Jedd O'Keeffe's yard is going well so expect some improvement from Kendred Soul while both Ghost Of Alcatraz and Under The Stars are speedily-bred and this isn't the toughest of starts.
