A low grade handicap but it's still tougher than the seller Passionate Affair won over track and trip last week. Graphene scored over 1m2f at Bath last month but failed to cope in better company on his latest outing which leaves a host of unexposed types to choose from. RED PASSIFLORA may prove the best of them on her reappearance and handicap bow with her stable renowned for producing rapidly improving three-year-olds. Ophir and Third Stroke are other handicap debutants to note and it would be no surprise to see better from Musalaha, Lochalsh and Majestic Sun.
