My Target posted a much better effort over track and trip last time when beaten less than a length. He looks a leading contender along with THREE CLIFFS. The latter caught the eye staying on well for fourth having made a tardy start at Kempton on his recent debut and improvement is expected. Zerfaal, Tuddenham and Dance Of Heroes all made their introductions in better maidens than this on the Turf, while the likes of Soviet Courage and High Master have more experience and are others to keep an eye on.
