Choisan has been unfortunate to come up against some very speedy performers including on his latest start over the C&D where he got going too late. The slower ground should help today but he may find another useful performer in his way in the shape of SATANIC BEAT. A half-brother to six winners, he made a very encouraging debut at Newcastle when looking in need of the experience and will take some beating granted normal improvement. Elegant Flight was staying on over Sandown's 5f last week and this trip should prove ideal while Tip Top Gorgeous was caught close home over 7f at Redcar on Sunday. Luca Cumani's Out Do and Richard Fahey's filly Lady Loch should be noted in the betting on their debuts.
