Son of No Nay Never out of a mare who was a winner three times on the Flat. Pushed along from halfway on debut over 6f finishing down the field beaten 8L. Worth a check in the betting from yard with a good record at this meeting.

Born To Sea gelding out of a Holy Roman Emperor related to multiple Sha Tin winners Designs On Rome and Beauty Only. Finished third of five in maiden on the AW at Dundalk on debut last month. Likely to improve on that run.

Betting

Forecast

Kafu (11/8), Rangefield Express (11/4), Rest Bay (6/1), Anna's Girl (10/1), Lady Baroness (12/1), Elusive Fantasy (16/1), The Black Dandy (16/1), Sunday Scholar (20/1), From Glen To Glen (25/1)

Verdict

It pays to be up with the pace over this trip at Down Royal and RANGEFIELD EXPRESS is taken to build on his promising debut at Dundalk on the AW last month. The Ger Lyons-trained Kafu can be expected to improve on his debut run at the Curragh while Rest Bay is worthy of consideration in the opener.
