After failing to figure in the Brocklesby, Donny Rover returned to this track with a better effort a fortnight ago. He was still beaten over four lengths, however, and both Danfazi and Robynelle make more appeal with recent debut outings under their belts. Haikbidiac is related to winners but his yard has a less than impressive strike rate at this track with it's two-year-old runners. Fellow newcomer OCEAN STORM makes more appeal as he's a half-brother to a Group 3 winner and won't have to be anything to special to land this on his debut.
