9/4

Stepped up on promising Newbury debut with a second at Pontefract, both races over 5f. Step up to 6f should suit and he has to go on the short list with experience on his side.

14/1

Society Rock colt who cost £35,000 this year and is from the family of good sprinters Ratio and Hoof It. Stable not prolific with juveniles, but his speedy pedigree makes him of interest on debut.

16/1

Colt by first-season sire Coach House and whose dam won over 1m4f. May need further in time, but warrants a check in the betting on racecourse bow.

Milk It Mick colt out of a Kyllachy mare who won 10 times over sprint distances. Worth a check in the betting as he make his debut.

7/1

A Havana Gold colt out of a Dark Angel mare, he cost €52,000 as a yearling and is from the family of Group 3 winner Heeraat. Nice pedigree and respected stable can get one ready first time.

9/4

More Than Ready filly whose dam won from 7f to 1m1½f. Leading Northern stable is going well, so she has to be respected on her racecourse bow.

Betting

Forecast

Azor Ahai (9/4), Desert Lantern (9/4), Coolagh Magic (7/2), Sir Victor (6/1), Dark Havana (7/1), Capitan James (14/1), Cawthorne Lad (16/1), Champagne Mondays (28/1)

Verdict
Azor Ahai boasts the better form of the two to have run, but it would be no surprise to see Sir Victor take a big step forward from his Bath debut. However, there are some nicely-bred debutants in this and, with her stable in good form and in receipt of the allowances, DESERT LANTERN may be able to make a winning start. Coolagh Magic and Dark Havana are others with appealing pedigrees.
  1. Desert Lantern
  2. Sir Victor
  3. Azor Ahai
