SILENT MOMENT is making rapid progress and is the one to beat. She won her handicap debut at Kempton last week by over four lengths eased down and can shrug off a 6lb penalty and go in again. Biographer is another lightly-raced improver making his handicap and Polytrack debut after winning a maiden at Doncaster last month while The Holyman was in fine form at the turn of the year landing a double at this track. Kuda Huraa scored at Wolverhampton before a decent third in soft ground at Windsor and can figure along with Albaraka who has been competing in Pattern company without success since winning her maiden on the Polytrack last year.
