Verdict

Neither Toytown nor Josie Joe made much of an impression on their respective debuts and may need more time. Jockey bookings suggest the latter's stablemate, Smugglers Lane, is preferred. Abscent Friends is out of a prolific mare and can include a winner on the Fibresand amongst his relatives. Lunar Knot is trained locally and worth noting, but a speculative vote goes the way of KO CACHE. Her half-brother won at Lingfield recently and Keith Dalgleish has a good strike rate at the track.
