Betting

Forecast

Fly The Nest (8/11), The Paddocks (6/1), Mykindofsunshine (6/1), Blonde Warrior (13/2), Artistic Rifles (8/1), Mendoza (14/1), Salam Zayed (14/1), Happy Power (20/1), Prince Llyr (50/1), Mont Marsie (66/1), The Big Bad (100/1)

Verdict

Fly The Nest has the all important previous racecourse experience and sets a solid benchmark for the others to aim towards after a pleasing debut at Newmarket (5f) recently, but on paper plenty of the newcomers make appeal including The Paddocks (Richard Hannon), Artistic Rifles (Charles Hills), Blonde Warrior (Hugo Palmer) and the 625,000 gns pick Happy Power (Andrew Balding). However, we'll not desert Clive Cox, who is very much the man of the moment in the juvenile division at present, so hopefully MYKINDOFSUNSHINE is plenty sharp enough to do himself justice on debut.
