Verdict

Bahamian Art was a cheap purchase but was sent off favourite on her debut at Beverley and showed good speed until weakening inside the final furlong. She'll know more here but any improvement on El Che's debut third at Newmarket should make her tough to beat. Lady Desire is a half-sister to a winning sprinter and cost 27,000 euros and she's more speedily bred than Indian Keys. MOVING MELODY is by the speedy Equiano and has a sprinter's pedigree. Richard Fahey's newcomer can make a winning start in what looks a competitive maiden.
