MASTER MALACHY failed to meet expectations at Kelso on his debut in January but the ground was very testing that day and he is worth another chance on this better surface. Democratic Oath sets a fair standard on the form he showed for Gordon Elliott, while Dargiannini makes plenty of appeal on pedigree so is a newcomer to note.
