HADYA may have found a bigger-priced stablemate too good on her debut at Wolverhampton but finished seven lengths clear of the third. James Tate's filly can open her account in this. Mr Wickfield also filled the runners-up spot on his debut over 7f here when well ahead of Charlies Mate. Castle Combe, Beach Bar and Late Shipment have all run to a similar level, the latter on this surface at Kempton, while Billy Blue won't need to be anything out of the ordinary to get involved on his debut.
