Any significant support for the debutant Consign should be noted but the vote goes to SKY GARDEN. She's unlucky not to have lost her maiden tag already with three placed efforts on the Turf and can open her account in this. Tartary never looked like winning when fifth over C&D on his first start but a couple of those in front have subsequently franked the form while Apricot Sky is likely to improve on his debut sixth at Goodwood. Millers Wharf has had plenty of chances without getting any closer, however, and looks worth taking on again.
