SIXTH RACE: 1. Dynesque, 2. Bird In Love, 3. Star Act. LONG SHOT: Tizmiss.

Trainer John Shirreffs doesn’t usually put in a bunch of flashy drills for first-time starts and such is the case is here. This daughter of Dynaformer has been working nice and steady for her debut. She has the breeding to win first time out going long on the turf and we might get a hint of a price, too.
