Verdict

Daylight looked a nice prospect at Bath last month when easily landing his maiden but he ran poorly there three weeks later after pulling very hard in the early stages. He'll need to learn to settle better, a remark that also applies to the filly EXCEPTIONELLE, though the latter has been showing tremendous pace over 6f and looks to have something in hand. She couldn't quite get into the race at Newmarket last time but that was a better race than this and she can gain her second success on her fifth start. Miss Diva hasn't progressed as expected after scoring on her second start though she generally raced in much better company last season. This looks her trip and she's respected but easy Yarmouth winner Pixilated was handed a massive 10lb rise and not surprisingly finished last of four on his next start.
