Unraced son of Scat Daddy out of an unraced Unbridled's Song mare. Cost connections $600,000 at the sales last September and represents a leading yard on racecourse debut.

7/1

Unraced son of Australia bought for €130,000 at the sales in August last year. Half-brother to fair maiden National Glory and worth a check in the market on debut.

Unraced colt by Havana Gold bought for €40,000 as a yearling last September. Half-brother to winners Tanfeer and Daaree and market support would be interesting on debut.

9/2

Unraced son of Australia out of a mare who was placed in Group 2 company. Represents a top yard and is an interesting runner on his first appearance on the track.

50/1

Raced prominently but ultimately finished well beaten in a 7f maiden at Salisbury (good-to-firm) on debut a month ago. Others make more appeal.

Finished well beaten in a 6f maiden at Newbury (good-to-firm) when making his debut in May. Probably best watched stepping up in trip.

Unraced Zoffany colt bought for €30,000 at the sales last autumn. Half-brother to Bakhit and interesting to see how he fares in this contest.

6/1

Green when finishing a promising fifth in a 6f novice contest at Newbury (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Likely to have improved for the experience and is one to note on this occasion.

Slowly away and finished a well held fifth when making his debut in a 7f novice contest here three weeks ago. Others hold stronger claims.

Forecast

Beatboxer (9/4), Kosciuszko (9/2), Venedegar (6/1), Pesto (6/1), Ritchie Valens (6/1), Fraser Island (7/1), Noble Ancestry (12/1), Havana Rocket (25/1), Rajinsky (33/1), Merlin's Magic (50/1)

Verdict
BEATBOXER is taken to make a winning debut for a leading yard in the opening race on the card. The selection was an expensive purchase at the sales and can get the better of stablemate Koscluszko who is bred to be a useful individual. Third place can go the way of Ritchie Valens who is likely to have improved for his debut effort.
