Yorgunnabelucky half-brother to several winners, including useful 6f-1m winner California Laws. Belied big price on belated debut at Lingfield when finishing a close fifth of 9, and should improve.

Oasis Dream gelding who is bred to be useful, but disappointed on first two starts. Much more like it when second of 12 to Rebel Streak in novice at Windsor last time, and seems to be getting his act together.

Sepoy half-sister to a couple of winners including 6f/7f winner Arlecchino's Rock. Shaped well when second to Brexit Time in novice at Hamilton on debut, and almost certain to build on that.

Harbour Watch filly out of 5f listed winner. Ran well on debut at Wolverhampton (7f) in May, but failed to build on that next time, and drop in trip not certain to suit here.

By Sea The Stars out of a 7f listed winner, and cost 165,000 gns as a yearling. Checked out very tamely on debut at Newbury in April, although presumably thought capable of much better.

Shaped well on debut at Beverley (5f, good) last August and too keen when below that form at Newcastle in September. Should be capable of better, and market check required returning from a break.

Betting

Forecast

Akbar Shah (2/1), Agadeer (3/1), Zip Along (7/2), Poppy Love (13/2), Oneovdem (8/1), Strawberry Lace (16/1), Tropical Waters (20/1)

Verdict

AKBAR SHAH has been slow to learn what is required, but his latest second at Windsor represented a big step forward, and he should take the beating if improving again on that. Zip Along would be a threat if ready to go after a break, so needs a market check, with Agadeer also open to improvement after a pleasing debut at Hamilton, and she's not easily dismissed.
