Dancing Gizmo showed little on his Kelso introduction while there seems no reason why either Dizzy River or Think Green should reverse last month's C&D running with PYJAMA GAME, who ran a little green on his debut and will know more today. Rose Dobbin's five-year-old looks the one to beat. Danny Mags is out of a dam that was placed in bumpers and Tim Vaughan's Overbury gelding may prove the best of the newcomers, though Grandioso is sure to attract support given connections though his breeding is nothing special.
