BOXING SHADOWS hasn't raced since June but has been placed in both starts. His debut second at Musselburgh is easily the best form on show as he had subsequent Listed winner Hototo just behind and Bryan Smart's charge gets the nod. Clear Loch ran well on his introduction at Bath only to disappoint over 7f at Leicester last time but is still preferred to both Finaz and Loulou Vuitton. Gift Of Music is the first foal of Listed winner Loch Verdi and makes most appeal of the newcomers.
