7/4

Comfortably the most experienced runner in the field and built on plenty of promising efforts when a ready winner here over 7f last time out. Looks sure to stay further so step up here will suit and big player despite 7lb penalty.

Newcomer by City Zip is a brother to a 5f-1m1f winner Group Three winner out of a precocious Canadian dam. Yard in good form and can ready one first time so not overlooked on debut.

€80,000 yearling by Dream Ahead is a half-bother to a French and Swiss winner over 1m4f. Already gelded and trainer's two-year-olds generally need their first run so best watched.

Newcomer by Kingman is a half-brother to three winners all for this stable and out of a two-year-old winning dam who was also 1000 Guineas third. Very positive pedigree for yard which does exceptionally well with juveniles so claims obvious.

Possibly a shade disappointing latest as favourite over 1m at Kempton (AW) after filling the same spot on debut at Newmarket and looked as if he would need further in time although stiff track here makes this more of a test.

Close second on debut at Chantilly for former trainer Matthieu Palussiere over 7f and only beaten ½L over 7½f on debut for this yard at Ffos Las. Can expect improvement now and has to be considered here.

Beautifully bred colt by Dubawi out of Oaks winner Casual Look made a promising start when eighth of 18 at Newbury and clear signs there that he would appreciate further so this trip should help. Expecting improvement and not ruled out.

Newcomer by Le Havre cost €67,000 and is a half-brother to an Italian winner over 5f and 6f. Yard in decent form but other debutants from powerful teams appeal more.

100/1 and down the field in two starts at Kempton and Leicester. Huge surprise if he makes the frame and expecting similar odds today.

Promising third on debut over 6f at Windsor when staying on well and again doing best work latest when third in a valuable York Ebor festival maiden over 7f. 1m should suit even better and rates a leading player here.

Betting

Forecast

Barristan The Bold (7/4), Dalaalaat (3/1), Numero Uno (9/2), Damon Runyon (6/1), Flying Dragon (12/1), Albadr (12/1), Voltaic (14/1), Al Mikdam (25/1), Surrey Thunder (33/1), Trouble Shooter (100/1), Culture (100/1)

Verdict

Shadwell stud run two debutants here and both represent top yards so the fact that Jim Crowley selects DALAALAAT makes it quite reasonable to think this well bred colt can be more than useful representing a trainer who does particularly well with two-year-olds. Barristan The Bold sets the form standard and he will appreciate 1m but a 7lb penalty leaves him vulnerable against several interesting newcomers. Voltaic is one of several runners crying out for further and he could easily improve on his two thirds now tackling 1m.
