19,000gns foal, 25,000gns yearling. Third foal, dam unplaced 1m2f-1m4f maidens, full-sister to 6f/7f Group 2 two-year-old winner Strategic Prince. Couldn't rule him out on pedigree, though stable yet to get fully firing this season.

10-1 and easy enough to back ahead of his Ripon (5f, good to soft) debut last month, when beaten 10½L. Extra furlong plus that experience should not be lost on him and improvement is anticipated.

€12,000 yearling, £20,000 two-year-old. Fourth foal, full-brother to three maidens, out of a German 1m1f winning half-sister to Italian 1m2f Group 1 winner Querari. Others make more appeal over this trip on grounds of pedigree.

21,000gns yearling, Thirteenth foal. Half-brother to four winners, including two as juveniles over 7f-1m. Dam won over 1m3½f. Pedigree suggests he will want further, but stable's juveniles in great shape early in the season so could go well.

9-2 on debut when he ran well to be beaten just over 2L in a Yarmouth maiden (5f, soft) at the beginning of the month. Entitled to come on for that run and with the experience a plus, he should again be thereabouts.

Betting

Forecast

Usain Boat (5/4), Axel Jacklin (6/1), Oliver Hardy (10/1), Buckingham (12/1), Swiss Peak (14/1), Coastguard Watch (14/1), Arctic Spirit (16/1), Taylormade (16/1), Heatherdown (16/1), Mohogany (20/1), Indian Viceroy (20/1), Sandridge Lad (25/1), Kenoughty (25/1), Red Island (33/1)

Verdict

Not a lot of experience brought to the table here and the suggestion is to side with the one who has had the most positive start of them, USAIN BOAT, to improve on his Yarmouth second this time. Axel Jacklin could also come on a fair bit for his Ripon debut now upped in trip and is respected. There are several interesting newcomers, from whom good debut performances would be no surprise. They include Heatherdown, Oliver Hardy, Buckingham and Arctic Spirit.
