7/1

Decent level of form in six starts in maiden/novice company. Lumbered with top weight in his first nursery, but talented claimer takes off 3lb. Has to prove he is effective on the AW.

Has gradually been getting the hang of things as he proved when scoring at the third attempt at Epsom. Needs to find more on first run in a handicap, but that is entirely possible.

13/2

Promise on all four starts, latterly behind a high-class prospect at York. Stable is strong in the juvenile department and this gelding is very much one to note on his handicap bow in a first-time visor stepped up in trip.

3/1

Stable companion of top-weight Critical Data who has run really well in nurseries at Newmarket and Newbury. Has gone up in the weights despite his failure to win, but his form is quite strong and he has to enter calculations.

5/1

Travelled strongly and did not get the clearest of runs when third to a couple of Five Amarones' stable companions at Haydock. Competes off the same mark and is one to consider in first-time cheekpieces on AW debut.

Betting

Forecast

Eyelool (11/8), Gunforhire (3/1), So Hi Storm (5/1), Five Amarones (13/2), Critical Data (7/1)

Verdict

Cases can be made for all five of these. Gunforhire is just preferred to stable companion and top-weight Critical Data, but both may have to give way to FIVE AMARONES, who hails from a yard packed with juvenile talent and can show his true worth fitted with a visor for the first time. Eyelool and So Hi Storm have decent credentials of their own, so this should be a fascinating contest.
