15/8

Won in good style on debut at Newcastle last month on the AW surface, recovering from a slow start to score nicely. Won't be easy under penalty and on first turf start but sets a decent standard.

€22,000 Gregorian colt makes his racecourse debut for yard that does well at the track. Related to winners at up to 1m2f and dam was decent too. Interesting newcomer so market check suggested.

14/1

85,000 guineas colt by Ifraajj out of dan who won at 1m2f. Looks the part on paper and represents top yard so has to be considered on his racecourse bow.

8/1

Stable companion of Hoffa and cost 40,000 guineas as a yearling. By top miler Kingman out of a dam who stayed well. May do better over middle distances in time but market may indicate if he's forward enough to figure first time out

33/1

Dandy Man gelding who is half-brother to five individual winners. Yard in good form at present but not known for winning juvenile debutants, so may be better for the run.

7/2

Represents yard that won this race 12 months ago. Colt by Nathaniel who wasn't beaten far on debut at Newbury before finishing just third of four in Newmarket novice event latest. Should win a race or two and won't be far away.

14/1

Reliable Man colt makes racecourse bow for in-form yard, but presence of both tongue tie and hood suggests he is not a straight forward individual. Others make more appeal on paper.

66/1

Third stable representative. €48,000 Camacho colt who has a miler's pedigree so looks to be starting at the right trip. Looks yard's third string on jockey bookings but a decent display not out of the question.

9/1

Tale Of The Cat colt who made promising debut when third at big odds at Yarmouth then beaten just a length last time at Lingfield last time. Has claims and is rare runner here for southern yard.

6/1

Fair runner-up on debut at Ayr but then disappointed when favourite and only fourth at Carlisle, beaten seven lengths. Step up in trip may help but needs to raise his game.

100/1

Cheaply purchaseed Gale Force Ten gelding who really struggled when a talied off last of seven on debut at Beverley and looks as though he'll need plenty more time.

Betting

Forecast

Antagonize (15/8), Nathless (7/2), Wild Hope (6/1), Kingson (8/1), White Iverson (9/1), Off Piste (14/1), Hoffa (14/1), Dancin Boy (22/1), My Boy Lewis (33/1), Umustrememberthis (66/1), Zalmi Force (100/1)

Verdict
Newcastle winner Antagonize is the pick of those with experience having won well, but has to give away weight all round. Nathless represents last year's winning yard and is respected along with fellow southern raider White Iverson, but Richard Fahey's HOFFA has a decent pedigree and looks the pick of his handler's three runners. He wouldn't be the first from the yard capable of making a wining debut and is a sporting suggestion in an open contest.
  1. Hoffa
  2. Antagonize
  3. White Iverson
