RAUCOUS BEHAVIOUR ran on well at Brighton when making a winning debut and is open to any amount of improvement. Mark Johnston's colt looked green from the flag fall but he picked up well and is sure to appreciate this longer trip. Residence And Spa seemed to resent the surface at Haydock and is more interesting in blinkers on this better ground, whilst Cosmic Moon gets the nod from Paul Hanagan despite stablemate Bridle Belle holding obvious claims. The yard do well at this meeting so both are respected. Diamond Penny's form has a solid feel to it, and along with the progressive (at a lowly level) Daas Rite helps make this competitive.
