Richard Hannon won this with Cadeaux Pearl in 2010 and PEARL ACCLAIM sports the same colours today. He also boasts the best piece of form with a debut second at Newmarket to stablemate Havana Gold, who has since gone in again, and looks capable of opening his account here. A couple of others showed ability on their debuts namely Ovett, a close-up sixth on the Polytrack at Lingfield and Just Charlie, who was third on the Turf course at the same track last month. They should both figure in the finish with the newcomer Betzyoucan worthy of a second glance in the betting as she's related to four winners.
Just Charlie 20-1 (9-3) Led on rail, narrowly headed entering final furlong, stayed on same pace in 3rd inside final furlong, 3rd of 6, 1 1/4l behind Normal Equilibrium (9-0) at Lingfield 5f 2yo mdn (5) gf in Jun.
Ovett 8-1 (8-9) Held up towards rear, headway towards inside well over 1f out, stayed on inside final furlong, never nearer, 6th of 11, 1l behind Stupenda (8-4) at Lingfield 6f 2yo mdn auc stks (6) pol.
