Madison Square may not want it too soft and may have been beaten 14 lengths on debut but that form was given a boost by the winner's big run in Listed company at the weekend and Richard Hughes is clearly an interesting booking with Duke Of Florence in the line-up. The stoutly bred Ardlui is a fascinating newcomer for a shrewd yard and Baileys Agincourt must also come under consideration but preference is for GROOMED who ran a pleasing race at a big price on debut. That Newmarket maiden has begun to work out pretty well and William Haggas does well with his juveniles at this track. Tanjung Agas represents another yard that does well here, Swindy can only improve from his debut at Newbury behind a potentially top class winner and Dashing Eddie may also be able to step up on a low key debut at Doncaster.
