Bahri half-brother to moderate Flat maiden Admiral Rodney. Weakened alarmingly in a bumper at Warwick in April, which doesn't augur well for this belated Flat debut.

Cape Cross half-brother to Cambridgeshire third Very Talented from a successful South American family. Improved on promising debut when winning a Hamilton maiden by 6L last time, and better expected here. Hard to beat.

By High Chaparral and from an excellent Juddmonte Farms family, but sold very cheaply as a two-year-old, which sets alarm bells ringing. Market useful on debut.

Betting

Forecast

Desert Fire (1/16), Hamlul (5/4), Jaquar (9/2), Constituent (25/1), Speedy Lost Sock (50/1), Admiral Anson (66/1)

Verdict

Only DESERT FIRE and Hamlul make much appeal here, with the former, an easy winner of a Hamilton maiden, readily preferred to Sir Michael Stoute's Kempton runner-up. Constituent and Jaquar are bred to be useful, but the latter showed little on debut before being gelded, and Constituent was sold worryingly cheaply last autumn.
