Verdict

MANDY LEXI has plenty going for her in this opener. Bryan Smart does well with his sprinters and his charge made a fine start when inched out on her racecourse debut by Fat Gary at the Chester Cup meeting. Conditions are going to be at the other end of the spectrum now but course experience is a valuable attribute around here and she can go one better in receipt of the fillies' allowance. Odooj looks an interesting newcomer for the Haggas team and the market should indicate stable expectations first time up while Skytrain can be expected to progress significantly from an ordinary York debut as he hails from a yard whose juveniles frequently improve greatly for their initial experience.
