Verdict

Desert Ace wasn't disgraced on his debut at Salisbury and gave the impression that he'd be suited by a drop back to 5f. Crystalized has only beaten one home in two runs to date but her trainer also runs newcomer Touzr, who is by Invincible Spirit and has Frankie on board. INVOKE is owned by Highclere and has a speedy pedigree, being a half-sister to a 5f juvenile winner on the Polytrack. She may be forward enough to make a winning start.
