Verdict

BIG ACE stepped up on his debut with a half-length second at Beverley and shaped as though this extra furlong could unlock further improvement. Tim Easterby's charge is narrowly preferred to Zebzardee, who was the one to take out of a 5f Beverley maiden when looking very green before finishing well for third, and he should have more to offer. Aisling, who represents a Mark Johnston yard in excellent form with their juveniles this year, rates the pick of the newcomers.

Verdict

ZEBZARDEE showed plenty on debut at Beverley 2 weeks ago, and will benefit from the longer trip here. Big Ace is another capable of winning a race such as this, while Aisling could be the pick of the newcomers.
