29-9OR:
4/7

Winner on debut at Doncaster in June but bettered that effort when midfield behind Calyx in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot last time. Reproduction of that likely to be good enough, and addition of hood may help too (got worked up pre-race last time).

12/1

Made €130,00 at Goffs Orby Sales last September, likely to find this too sharp a test on debut and yard not really known for wining with them first time out as 2yos (just 1-14 in the past year). Only of interest if there's strong market support.

7/4

Plenty of promise to be taken from his debut run at Haydock in May but a little disappointing when a short-priced favourite at Nottingham next time. Step back up to 6f will undoubtedly help, and he ought to take a medal of some colour home.

66/1

Showed bright speed to lead at Lingfield last time and wasn't totally disgraced in the finish, but needs this for a handicap mark and she'll hold a much better chance in nurseries after this. One to watch for the future.

Bred to have some speed about her but yard not known for 2yo winners (just 9% strike rate with them on turf) and on that, best watched tonight.

Betting

Forecast

Dubai Legacy (4/7), Napanook (7/4), Cool Reflection (12/1), Illegitimate Gains (40/1), Twilight In Paris (66/1)

Verdict

DUBAI LEGACY is going to find this a lot easier than the Coventry and should be able to get back to winning ways. Napanook might be the main danger, as he looked to be crying out for a step back up to 6f last time out, which he gets here .Cool Reflection might be good enough for third on his debut.
