Verdict

SEA SHANTY disappointed when sent off favourite over C&D in August having gone close on his racecourse debut at Ascot before that. He gets the chance to make amends here with Richard Hughes preferring him to both Fort Knox and Beautiful View. The dam of Oasis Spirit is a half-sister to Rodrigo De Triano and Andrew Balding's filly is worth a second glance on her debut ahead of fellow newcomers Mawson, Whiskeymack and Secret Rebel.
