The trio for the shortlist here are Saafia, BAHAMIAN MUSIC and Touch Tone and the vote is given to Bahamian Music. Richard Fahey has got his string in good form at present and his filly Bahamian Music ran well on her debut at Thirsk when she finished third behind Jehu. She looked as though she would come on plenty for the experience that day and she could be one to stay on the right side of. Touch Tone is a well-bred Selkirk filly and she has to be of interest on her racecourse debut, although the form of the stable is a slight cause for concern. Saafia is another newcomer to catch the eye and Mark Johnston has been firing in plenty of winners so she should go well on her racecourse bow. Howdoyalikemenow was well beaten on her debut at Redcar so she is hard to fancy, but while Crystal Gale never recovered from a slow start at Salisbury last month and it could be too early to write her off. Bahamian Music makes most appeal and she gets the vote.
