The opening contest of ITV's racing see's maiden colts take each other on to score their first victory racing. The field of nine has a mix of experienced and un-raced sorts.
Loyal Touch for Charlie and Mark Johnstone is one of those who arrives here with some experience under his belt having been seen in making his debut at Salisbury over 7 furlongs last month. The No Nay Never colt shaped nicely on his first start to be 3rd but not beaten too far. Well backed before the off to be favourite, Loyal Touch looked green in the final stages but stayed on nicely enough to be beaten less than a length at the finish.
With that experience in the books he will understand the task at hand more here and should fare better. Ryan Moore is a statement jockey booking by connections and he can score his first win of his career in this open looking race.
