CAMBORNE made a winning debut over today's trip at Kempton in November and better is expected this year. He has some improving to do but is worth sticking with on his handicap bow. Kyllachy Spirit and Bahamian Music are both capable in this grade but are making their seasonal debuts and Big Creek looks a bigger threat on his recent placed efforts over further. The veteran Megalala may be found wanting in this company, but Southern State had Hidden Glory well behind when winning at Southwell last time and should go well again.
