Ralph Beckett seems to win at least one maiden with a really promising filly here each year and MISS DIAGNOSIS may be able to follow in the footsteps of Ceilidh House and Kayah. The first foal of a Listed winner was far from disgraced in a Sandown maiden won by the highly regarded Masked Marvel in September and looks capable of making considerable progress. Mungo Park is another to have pleased on debut but there are a number of likely looking newcomers to consider. The market may tell whether George Baker's expected to get a tune out of Joe Strummer, Circus Act represents a yard in top form whilst support for any of Akrias, Unex Picasso or Dauphine would bring them firmly into the equation.
