It was soft ground when SIGN OF THE ZODIAC made his debut at Newbury last month where he stuck on well to finish fourth. This looks easier and Richard Hannon's colt can get off the mark. Hillbilly Boy floundered in heavy going last time but had gone close at Beverley before that and should be thereabouts but Icanboogie and Majestic Jess are easily overlooked on the evidence of their poor debut efforts. Unidexter is a brother to a two-year-old winner and boasts five other winning relatives so any strong support for him on his debut could prove significant.
