A tough one for punters to unravel. Daytime Ahead is inconsistent but has won around here on heavy ground. Ostuni couldn't handle heavy going at Plumpton on Monday though that was his first start for a year while Rarest Diamond, who makes her handicap debut, ran poorly when well supported at Plumpton. Arctic Footprint is another making her handicap bow and she ran better in testing conditions at Exeter while ET APRES THOU showed his first sign of ability when staying on over 2m3f at Taunton. The latter might be good enough to get off the mark though Sandymount Rose will attract attention after her placed efforts at Exeter and Southwell.
