The likes of Six Silver Lane and the badly-drawn pair Seanie and Reckless Lad appeal as potential winners in this grade. However, there must be a chance that these course stalwarts will be upstaged by SPIRAL GALAXY, a lightly-raced sort from a top stable. He ran well enough here on his debut before failing to improve when tried over longer distances in two turf outings. [Alan Sweetman]
