Grass Green is from the same family as the smart Indian Ink and she could well give the boys a run for their money. But Willie Haggas also runs the £65,000 yearling Nezar, who looks to have a better draw. The market may well indicate which is expected to fare best on debut but we like the look of Charlie Hills' Dark Angel colt CAPTAIN BOB. He cost £80,000, is related to a smart miler and should be ready to do himself justice. Canary Lad and Kickboxer are others to monitor in the betting as Bonjour Steve, the best of those with experience, is already starting to look exposed.
