Beaten 98L in a bumper back in January and it wasn't much better on first flat start at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) last month when tailed off. Impossible to make a case for.

$450.000 Speightstown colt from a good family that included US Grade 2 winning miler Rule. Made highly encouraging debut when a closing second of 10 over 7f at Newcastle (AW) two weeks ago. Major player here up in trip.

Already gelded son of Makfi who was picked up cheaply for 5,500 gns in February this year. Dam was a quirky maiden (refused to race) and market will be a good guide to expectations on debut.

Gelded son of Mazameer who cost 25,000 gns as a foal. Half-brother to a couple of winners. Dam was lowly rated on the flat and only won a claimer. Yards runners tend to need their first run.

Big prices and well beaten on two starts as a juvenile last year. Needs to show plenty of improvement to play a part but that is entirely possible after a long lay off. Could be one for handicaps after this.

Seems to be developing a liking for softer ground than she is likely to get here and although she has run well in a couple of handicaps of late, she is vulnerable to anything with ability here.

Daughter of Mastersraftsmen. First foal, dam was fairly useful and was placed over 7f and 1m2f and is a half-sister to a French Derby winner. Yard know how to ready one first time and an interesting newcomer to note.

Looked green as grass on debut when failing to beat a rival home and hanging left at Ayr (1m1f, good). Should have learnt from that experience and should do better in time.

Thought good enough to contest the Sandringham at Royal Ascot last time but finished well down the field off a mark of 81. Slight suspicion that she would prefer softer ground but is a leading contender back down in a novice event.

Betting

Forecast

Algaffaal (8/11), Why We Dream (6/4), Gamesters Icon (7/1), Play Mate (8/1), Joie De Vivre (20/1), Bin Makfi (25/1), Meadow Way (80/1), Nunnery Lane (100/1), Mama Said (100/1), Barrister (200/1)

Verdict

Lots of respect is given to Why We Dream who has some decent from in the book and sets a good standard. There is a slight suspicion that she may be better on softer ground though. Joie De Vivre is a newcomer to note for Richard Fahey. She has a lovely middle distance pedigree and it would be no surprise to see her go well on debut. Preference is for ALGAFFAAL who shaped with considerable promise on debut over 7f and should appreciate this trip. With the anticipated improvement to come he should be tough to beat.
