The Sportsman's Verdict
DONCASTER ROSA could be the answer here as Ivan Furtado's filly looks to better her Beverley second on debut. She was somewhat unfancied that day, but should be much shorter in the betting this time. Mecca's Hot Steps ran an encouraging race at the same venue on her first start and is another potential improver in the pack, while the same can be said for Thirsk runner-up Dandizette and Queens Blade. Romero looks a useful newcomer and is a half-brother to Group 3 winner Love Lockdown, while Mr Gus is another debutant to keep an eye on.
