Showed benefit of a switch to this yard when running away with a novice event at Thirsk last time. That's the best piece of form on offer which makes him a leading player here under a penalty.

Morpheus colt who cost €22,000 as a yearling. Won a maiden at Limerick back in June. Struggled on handicap debut at Down Royal last time but respected back in novice company here with the visor on first time.

Son of Zoffany who was gelded ahead of debut. Cost €35,000 as a foal decreasing to 6,250 gns as a yearling. Well held a long way behind Five Amorones on debut at Thirsk. Struggle to overturn those placings at this stage.

33,000 gns Poet's Voice colt related to five minor winners. Shaped with promise when staying on steadily at Carlisle (6f, soft) on debut last month. This extra furlong should help and improvement likely.

Dutch Art colt that cost 57,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to useful sprinter Private Matter. Yard know how to ready one and market check very much needed.

Shaped with promise on debut at York before two disappointing efforts since, all over 6f. Up in trip today but needs to do plenty more to be winning this.

Dark Angel filly that cost €40,000 as a yearling. Showed minor promise on debut at Beverley (7½f, good to firm). Needs to step up on that now but should be more to come.

Daughter of Elzaam that cost just €15,000 as a yearling. Dam was unraced and will be interesting to see how she fares in the market compared to stablemate Chapman Billy.

Forecast

Chapman Billy (10/3), Five Amarones (10/3), It'llcomein (4/1), Sense of Belonging (9/2), City Tour (13/2), Joza (7/1), Beaufort (8/1), Encore Mam'selle (10/1), Lexington Palm (16/1)

Verdict

City Tour is an interesting newcomer for his powerful yard and a market check is needed. CHAPMAN BILLY shaped with lots of promise over slightly shorter on debut and this extra yardage could unlock the improvement for him to win at the second attempt. Five Amorones sets a pretty clear standard to aim at but may be vulnerable under a penalty here.
