Ran the useful Red Starlight to a length on debut and outclassed his rivals at Haydock. The fourth was beaten 18L and went on to land a handicap off a mark of 75. Fair to say he should be rated in the high 90s judged on both performances.

200,000 gns gelded son of Kodiac out of a half-sister to useful sprinter Danetime. Yard's newcomers generally need a run and he will have to be very good indeed to take this.

Refused to load ahead of intended debut, showed promise at Kempton and then ran loose ahead of his last intended start. Each-way claims if the preliminaries don't get the better of him.

Off the track 10 months since finishing runner-up to a horse who won his next two starts. That absence and the fitting of cheekpieces have the alarm bells ringing..

Purchase price dropped dramatically when resold last year, and he left Jamie Osborne after finishing down the field at Lingfield in January. Well beaten on stable debut and he needs some of these to underperform.

Has looked green on both starts to date and he is even more highly tried here. Handicaps beckon after this.

Pivotal half-brother to 1m winner Still Life and 6f winner Zilza. Withdrawn after refusing to enter stalls on intended debut in May and has since been gelded.

Nathaniel filly out of a dam who was placed in Listed company over 6f. Well beaten at a big price on debut and she needs to have learned an awful lot.

Betting

Forecast

Auxerre (1/4), Gaudi (3/1), Fronsac (6/1), Creek Harbour (14/1), Silent Dreams (33/1), Woosh (50/1), Yvanlend (50/1), Jabarout (66/1), Your Band (66/1)

Verdict

This should be a straightforward task for AUXERRE if running to the form of his first two starts. He chased home Red Starlight (currently rated 99) on debut and then dominated his rivals next time. The pick of his rivals, Gaudi, ran to a much lower level when beaten a short-head on his last start 10 months ago, whilst Fronsac could give a good account if remaining calm in the preliminaries.
