Storm Moon was nowhere near his best here last month and is better judged on some fine efforts in strong company previously. Tipping Over has run in three Listed contests since landing a Newmarket maiden so should find this company more to her liking. New Fforest made all for an easy victory in a Wolverhampton maiden and makes her handicap debut and Mandy Layla is 7lb higher than when landing a C&D nursery last month. TIME AND PLACE put the promise shown on his Thirsk debut to good use when landing a decent maiden at Pontefract where he travelled well throughout. He makes his handicap debut on what could be a lenient mark and gets the nod as there should be more to come.
