GLIMPSE OF LIGHT is our selection with Gilt Edge Girl and Lenny Bee as the alternatives. A relatively cheap purchase by the stable standards, the filly shaped with a modicum of promise in two Wolverhampton events last year and with the paddocks a possibility in the near future, a win would be welcome. Gilt Edge Girl drops back to five furlongs. This is her first ever outing on an artificial surface so the market will give us a clue. Lenny Bee ran incredibly green on debut. The penny dropped when it was ultimately much too late. Milton Bradley has his regular battalion. Island Legend could be interesting granted the booking of Luke Morris. Rare Bet has been bred with sprinting very much in mind. Agean King is incredibly well bred so it is something of a worry that he could muster only 5000gns at the sales. Flamboyant Red was one of the more expensive purchases at the sales though is exposed as ordinary. Glimpse Of Light gets the nod.
