This looks wide-open. Coillte Cailin ran well enough over track and trip to finish third on her debut and Indira made a promising start when runner-up at Kempton. CAPTAIN MO was less impressive on his introduction behind Bon Port here when sent off a short-priced favourite but Marco Botti's colt is given a chance to make amends in this. Unscripted is a newcomer to note in the betting for the Hannon yard and Hardy Black, a half-brother to the useful Bronterre, makes more appeal than stablemate Intensive.
