100/1

Well beaten on all four starts, including when finishing last of 14 at Catterick last time on handicap debut off a low mark. Up against it back in maiden class.

Shown very little ability in his five starts to date and drop in trip unlikely to help his cause. Hard to fancy.

Thewayyourare gelding, cost €21,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winners and dam related to Group 1 performer. Showed very little at Chester on debut when green. Should progress but has plenty on his plate.

Kodiac gelding, cost €25,000 as a foal and 200,000 gns as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to a useful sprinter. Showed ability at Chelmsford on debut and likely to take a step forward for that.

Looks far from straightforward (can be unruly in the prelims) but improved from debut at Kempton to finish placed at Chelmsford last time. Runner-up from that contest has won since and probably sets the standard on form.

Harbour Watch colt, half-brother to a winning sprinter. Dam a half-sister to Abbaye winner and a Listed winner. Has more of a sprint pedigree; interesting to see what the market makes of him.

Kheleyf colt, half-brother to two middle distance winners. Dam a 1m2f winner and hurdles winner. Entitled to need this on debut.

Raven's Pass colt, cost 70,000 gns as a foal. Half-brother to seven winners including a Group 3 winner. Dam a half-sister to a Group 2 winner. Yard's debutantes usually ready to go and a fascinating contender with De Sousa in the saddle.

Poet's Voice gelding, cost £2,500 as a two-year-old. Dam related to a Group 1 winner over this trip. Already gelded and probably best watched on debut.

Has been slowly away on both starts and ultimately well beaten. May do better over a little further when tackling handicaps.

Teofilo filly that's a half-sister to a 6f winner, but yard rarely have winners in this sphere and she's likely to need this experience. Withdrawn ahead of scheduled debut at Chester. Wears first-time hood.

Forecast

Matterhorn (13/8), Fronsac (3/1), Nomoathaj (4/1), Creek Harbour (5/1), Silent Dreams (8/1), Harbour Bay (16/1), Blame It On Me (25/1), Muthanaa (33/1), Tarbeyah (33/1), Khaan (40/1), Bigdabog (80/1), Bevsboy (100/1)

Verdict

CREEK HARBOUR is well bred and showed enough on debut to suggest he can go well here. Fronsac is another with experience capable of going well while Matterhorn is an interesting debutante in a wide open maiden.
