This looks an ideal race for FASHIONABLE GAL to get off the mark. Sir Mark Prescott's runner has found just one too good in three starts this term but this step up in trip looks the right move to get her on top. Joan D'Arc has won three times over timber since last seen on the level so while on form in a maiden that she won't have to find much improvement to win she looks the danger. Yeomanry has enough about him on paper to suggest a good debut while Asterisk is given a chance based on his debut effort.
