Verdict

EL SALVADOR will start a short-priced favourite on his all-weather debut and, as he's been kept in Aidan O'Brien's yard as a four-year-old, must be though capable of better. His two runs early last summer were on testing ground so hopefully this surface will bring out the best in him. He's by no means a certainty, however, and Urban Ball is likely to ensure he doesn't have things his own way. John Oxx' filly has some decent form around here despite letting her supporters down more than once and her allowance will aid her cause. Busted Tycoon has gradually improved with experience and though eventually well beaten by Kharezi here last time gave notice that his turn was imminent. Overcall showed some promise last summer and may do best of the remainder.
