Beau Nash has won over the minimum trip but wasn't very convincing when tried over today's distance at Newmarket. He'll need more to get the better off the less-exposed CAPTAIN SECRET as Marco Botti's filly had a subsequent winner behind when scoring over 7f at Doncaster in July and has plenty of scope for improvement. The newcomer Manipulation won't have to be anything special to finish ahead of Sydney James and Starlight Princess.
