5/1

Exceed And Excel filly who cost €100,000 as a yearling. Wore a hood (retained) and caused a surprise when winning in commanding style on debut. Time backed up the performance and likely plenty more to come.

7/4

Well-bred son of Scat Daddy who cost $950,000 as a yearling and certainly catches the eye on pedigree. Trainer capable of readying a newcomer and worth noting in the market.

20/1

Cost $500,000 as a yearling and a first foal of a dam who won a Grade 2 as a juvenile in the US. Leading trainer's runners tend to improve for the run and bred to do better over further but market support would be interesting.

66/1

40,000gns yearling with stamina on sire's side and speed on dam's. Trainer had just the one juvenile winner this year and probably best watched in this company on debut.

13/8

From family of owner's Haydock Sprint Cup winner Tante Rose and made a smart debut when touched off in a photo finish at Windsor. Should improve from debut and looks a leading contender.

66/1

Cost €48,000 as a yearling and although he was badly hampered on his last start, has struggled to get involved on all three runs to date. Best watched until getting over a trip.

7/1

Daughter of Invincible Spirit who is bred with plenty of speed in her pedigree. Looks a likely type on debut for stable who continue in very good form.

Betting

Forecast

Swindler (13/8), Magic J (7/4), Excelled (5/1), Dubai Opera (7/1), Mubakker (20/1), The Game Is On (33/1), Toro Dorado (66/1), No Thanks (66/1)

Verdict
EXCELLED gets a narrow verdict from those with experience having won with a bit to spare on debut and in a good time. She looks only likely to improve for the experience but so is Swindler who was unlucky not to win first time and there's little between them. Dubai Opera is interesting over a trip that should prove ideal and should be noted in the betting along with fellow newcomers Magic J and Mubakker.
