Sloane Avenue won easily on debut at Lingfield but had little to beat and is likely to find life tougher from now on. PINZOLO didn't appear to do a lot wrong when third over track and trip on his reappearance. He won twice as a two-year-old and can get back on track today ahead of Truth Or Dare, third in a Group 3 here last year but well beaten in both starts this season including when behind Master Carpenter at Sandown. Hunters Creek has yet to win on Turf and needs to improve on his run here last month if he's to figure.
