Broadway Babe's second at Kempton was a step up on her first start and she's likely to be thereabouts here while Cellist was too green to do himself justice on his debut at Sandown and will know more today. EDUCATE also had his first run on the Esher track and was a real eye-catcher, running green and then repeatedly denied room to manoeuvre when the penny dropped up the straight. That will have taught him plenty and Ismail Mohammed's colt can land this before going on to better things. Newbury fourth La Pampita could appreciate the faster surface but she's starting to look exposed.
