2/1

Candy Ride colt that went unsold as a yearling at $95,000. Attracted money in the market over C&D on debut and won going away. Penalty to carry here but will be a leading contender with further progress.

Teofilo half-brother to useful 5f-7f winner Enlace and 2-y-o 6f winner Overstep. Held up and not really involved in two starts so far. Major improvement needed to take this and wide draw doesn't help.

Cost 42,00 gns and is a half-brother to winners between 1m and 1m2f. Well held on both starts so far including over a furlong further here last time and needs to take a step forward on that now.

Son of New Approach that fetched a tidy sum of 240,000 as a yearling. Brother to 7f Listed winner and Poule d'Essai des Poulains second Hey Gaman. Blinkers enlisted on debut for powerful connections.

Son of Dream Ahead. Trainer has only had four two-year-old newcomers so far this year but three of those came on the AW. Nice pedigree and market check needed on debut.

By Frankel out a German Group 3 winner and a half-brother to six winners including Listed winner Marina Piccola. Slowly away and never on terms when sent off a short priced favourite on debut. Should do better.

Dalakhani colt that cost 75,000 gns as a yearling. Well beaten on debut over this C&D and is likely to do better once tackling longer trips.

4,500 gns son of Battle Of Marengo and half-brother to a 6f AW winner. Well held in both starts so far and handicaps should suit better on the back of this.

Cheap purchase but showed the benefit of a run when running a cracker over C&D on second start to finish second. Any further improvement would see him on the premises once more.

Already gelded son of Es Que Love that cost £22,000 as a yearling. Related to a few winners but others have stronger paper claims.

Oasis Dream filly out of a modest AW winner. Well held on both starts so far and probably best watched once again.

Betting

Forecast

Fields Of Athenry (2/1), New King (11/4), Marhaban (7/2), Purbeck Hills (11/2), Sunvisor (8/1), Mojave (14/1), Lucipherus (20/1), Crimewave (22/1), Rich Cummins (33/1), Sea Of Marengo (80/1), Twpsyn (80/1), Upper School (150/1)

Verdict

Marhaban makes obvious appeal on debut although it is a little worrying that the blinkers go straight on. Fields Of Athenry won well on debut and will be a major force once again under the penalty. Better is expected of NEW KING who was well backed but slowly away on debut and can get back on track here.
