Verdict

Douglas Pasha won a lowly handicap at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago and has joined a new yard since. He'll find this tougher, while Desert Donkey is dropped in class for his Turf debut in the hope of losing his maiden tag. Studfarmer finished ahead of LA SYLPHE when third at Wolverhampton on his latest start but the latter came good at the same track last week. Derek Shaw's filly is taken to follow-up now back to something like her best. It doesn't bode well that Heyward Boy makes his debut at this level and he's probably best watched for now.
