Kyllachy colt, cost 52,000 gns as a yearling and 75,000 gns as a Breeze-Up purchase. Dam a half-sister to a Group 3 winner over this trip. Yard do well at this course including with their juveniles and market should reveal expectations.

Lilbourne Lad colt, cost £4,000 as a yearling. Dam a winner over 7f and a full-sister to useful middle-distance Grade 1 winner. Interesting pedigree but sales price a little off-putting as far as this race is concerned and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

True Belief (11/8), Kessaar (9/2), Lightning Attack (6/1), Burning Lake (13/2), I Am A Dreamer (8/1), First Thought (10/1), Sense of Belonging (20/1), Lincoln Park (33/1), Amadeus Grey (40/1), Siona's Boy (66/1)

Verdict

Charlie Appleby has been in excellent form with his two-year-olds this year and TRUE BELIEF gets the tentative vote given his pedigree. Burning Lake and First Thought are two more eye-catching debutantes while I Am A Dreamer can put his racecourse experience to good use.
