CONFLICTING made up plenty of ground to grab second at Nottingham on his debut. He makes most appeal of the Hannon-trained trio and is just preferred to Cincuenta Pasos. The latter finished a promising third over track and trip on his introduction. Frangipanni was less impressive when fifth at this track last month and Previous Acclaim was a big disappointment in the same race having made the frame at Goodwood on her debut. Furas and Acertainplace could prove best of the newcomers.
