Hoofalong was a big disappointment when odds-on at Beverley, though may just have needed the run. The drop back to 5f should suit Tarara while Gallena looked as though she'd have more to offer following her debut fourth. PIVOTAL MOVEMENT was started out over 7f at Newbury but didn't get home. He cost 280,000gns at the sales since will be expected to win races and this looks a good opportunity as, being by Pivotal, he should enjoy the rain-softened ground. Secret Success is a half-brother to a 5f juvenile winner and Paul Hanagan has been booked for his debut. He is one to watch if the market speaks in his favour while Winnie Perry may prove the pick of the remainder.
