FANTASTIC PICK is an animal on the upgrade and looks weighted to confirm superiority over Ella Grace and complete a hat-trick while Diamond Duchess is a commendable type who should be going close again. The pick's winning sequence was started when he was upped in trip and introduced to the handicap ranks leaving him to score on both his starts in this sphere. He looks open to more improvement and his pedigree suggests he'll be even better over this tougher stamina test. Ella Grace was found wanting by three lengths when only finding the pick too good last time. We suggest the weights will lead to a repeat of that form with a step up in trip not looking ideal for Richard Fahey's charge. Diamond Duchess has been steadily improving and looks in need of this step up in trip to get off the mark in this company while Storm Command is coming to hand and after only finding a useful sort far too good last time he makes the shortlist. This Nursery Handicap contains some interesting contenders and Fantastic Pick looks like he'll improve again.
