Charlie Hills’ charge is dipping her toe into handicap waters for the first time but an initial mark of 84 does not look too harsh as she has shown up well enough on each of her three maiden outings.

Beaten just a neck by subsequent Irish Guineas fourth Czabo on her racecourse bow last August, Jadaayil let down her supporters the following month when only fourth at Haydock on what was her final 2015 start.

Jadaayil put that run well behind her though when returning at Newmarket last month, overcoming a rather keen early attitude and finding plenty more when put under pressure to run out a cosy length-and-a-half winner.

The second and fourth have since come out and won so there is a little weight to the form and Jadaayil remains a reasonably unexposed contender.

Bolt Phantom was unfortunate to bump into a useful type in Silver Line on his first trip to the track, but compensation awaits in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes.

This Exchange Rate colt was slowly away that day but recovered well to make up lost ground and was the only one to serve it up to the winner.

Bolt Phantom may have been beaten just under four lengths but he was eight lengths clear of the rest, so he must be one for the short lilst.

Thammin boasts a speedy juvenile pedigree so he is of interest in the second division of the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes while Hyde Park, who hails from the family of Flintshire, is another newcomer to note in the first division.

Tenzing Norgay shed his maiden tag at Lingfield last week and a quick return to action can pay dividends in the Come To Countryside Day June 4 Handicap back at that venue.
