Curl's best effort came over 6f but she's not without a chance on her handicap debut. Cappadocia is more exposed and harder to fancy but Spithead wasn't disgraced on his handicap debut on the Polytrack here and should make another bold bid. Mixed Message and Sutton Sid may improve for the extra distance and so should OUR THREE GRACES. She had a subsequent winner back in fourth when runner-up over 6f at Bath and her five winning relatives all scored over today's trip or further. Gary Moore's filly gets the nod with possibly Moonlit Dancer the best of the rest.
