STRAIT RUN faded in the closing stages of his debut run at Salisbury in the testing ground. Improvement is expected given that Richard Hughes prefers him to stablemate and newcomer, Swanwick Shore, and he gets the nod. Ravenous has shown nothing so far and a newcomer could prove a bigger threat. Flight Officer and Canova are worth noting and Cinnamon Spice is a half-brother to the useful Luhaif, but the 150,000 euros purchase, Impulsive Moment, may come out best of the debutants.
