Tableforten finished runner-up over 5f at Doncaster on his debut and Llyrical is expected to appreciate this extra furlong after staying on for third at Chepstow. TRINITY BOY also made a tardy start on his debut but made up ground to finish in the places at Leicester and Clive Cox' colt gets the vote to open his account in this. Go For Broke should be noted representing the Hannon team and Killing Time is out of a winning sprinter. Anya's Angel is related to a couple of winners but breeding suggests Monsieur Blanc and Rolling Dice may need further to show their best.
