Richard Hannon can do little wrong with his juveniles this term so his two runners here, Looksmart and Highcliffe, are bound to be popular with backers particularly the former who has the racing experience but MILLYLUVSTOBOUGGIE should improve for the step up from the minimum trip and is preferred. The selection is trained by Clive Cox and comes into this having run well in both starts so far, latterly when a close up fourth behind Malice Or Mischief at Chepstow, having been beaten just a nose first time out and she can go one better today. Ed Vaughan's Ransom Request was one of the more expensive purchases in the field and she has to be considered on her debut as does Sylvester Kirk's Hawk Wing filly, Zamina. Tim Easterby's No Poppy lost no caste in defeat at Carlisle when upped to six furlongs for the first time last week and she is another with claims but the vote goes to Millyluvstobouggie.
