11/4

Winner over C&D on debut and backed that up with another solid effort under a penalty at Kempton over 7f next time. Step back up in trip should suit and a leading player once more. Yard also run Victoriano.

Wolverhampton winner over 7f on third start and went close to defying the penalty next time at Musselburgh. Struggled on handicap debut at Newbury last time but may not have been in love with the ground there. Claims now back in novice company.

Lope De Vega colt that cost 22,000 gns as a yearling. Dam placed up to 1m4f, half-sister to French Group 3 winner Aboulie. Makes appeal on paper and market will be a good guide.

Garswood gelding that fetched 17,000 gns as a yearling. Half-brother to several winners including Group 1 winner Urban Fox. Dam a winner over 1m2f. Market should guide on debut.

Teofilo colt who fetched €20,000 as a yearling. Sent off favourite on debut at Newcastle (1m, AW) but green and always outpaced there. Should know plenty more this time and interesting to see how he compares in the market to stablemate Anycity.

Barely beaten a rival home and tailed off on all three starts so far. Blinkers go on but needs a huge jump forward to be involved.

Gelded son of Charm Spirit bought cheaply for 5,000 gns at the sales last year. Held up and ran green on debut at Bath last month. Should know more now and could improve.

Tamayuz half-sister to 7f-1¼m winner Beach Wedding out of a 1½m/1m5f winner. Yet to beat a rival home in two starts although did show a little more dropped to 5f last time. Up in trip now.

Went close in a Doncaster Novice event and form is not as bad as it seems since. Forced pretty wide in a handicap at Lingfield last time and finished well. If she runs to her best she'd have pretty clear claims.

Stopped to a walk at Newmarket when dropped to a seller and has now shown nothing in three starts to date. Easy to overlook again.

Betting

Forecast

Anycity (11/4), Lonely Boy (11/4), Itizzit (4/1), Power Of States (9/2), Victoriano (6/1), Charmed Spirit (14/1), Spirit Of Lucerne (16/1), Garryowen (33/1), Bridlemere Court (66/1), Milldean Billy (80/1), Too Many Lovers (100/1)

Verdict

Archie Watson holds strong claims with previous C&D winner Anycity a strong contender once again and the once race VICTORIANO. The latter was a little green on debut and never really got involved. He should know plenty more this time around and has good claims of taking a step forward. Itizzit will be dangerous if running up to her best efforts.
