Verdict

It could pay to stick with COSTA FILEY rather than guess at the ability of the newcomers. Ed Vaughan's charge was expected to do better at Sandown last time but his earlier second at Kempton was good enough form to land an ordinary maiden and he may come good in this. The betting is likely to provide the best clue to the chances of the debutants. Clumber Street is a half-brother to a 7f winner but both Wadi Alamardi and Secret Romance can count winners of 5f Listed races among their relatives.
