6/1

Lope De Vega newcomer a full-brother to a French 7f winner and half-brother to three more winners at around 1m. Respected yard in good form so market check advised.

3/1

Finished fourth in 1m and 7f novice contest at Kempton last month with slight improvement in the most recent. Not far from the required level in either and could again improve for top yard so can't be ruled out.

Lethal Force colt was a well beaten fourth of five here last month over C&D on racecourse debut. May want further with time but best watched for now based on that run.

Son of Pastoral Pursuits finished fourth in both starts to date, the most recent in a 12-runner Wolverhampton maiden. That not far short of the required level here so certainly capable of making the frame.

13/8

Nose second here over C&D penultimately followed by another second latest at Kempton. Sure to win such a contest sooner rather than later and sets a solid standard here so looks the one to beat.

39-2OR:
100/1

150/1 for 1m debut here and duly struggled as market suggested as he finished 10th of 13 beaten 12L. Time on his side but hard to fancy based on that evidence.

Bated Breath newcomer a half-sister to a four time winner over around 1m-1m1f and three maidens. Yard not exactly known for success with newcomers so likely best watched here.

75,000gns newcomer by Sepoy a half-sister to a 6f AW winner. Yard in excellent form and well capable with newcomers so merits respect especially if any market support.

Betting

Forecast

Shanghai Grace (13/8), Kingdom Of Dubai (3/1), Wise Words (9/2), Battle Of Yarmouk (6/1), Paddy's Pursuit (7/1), Mustadun (16/1), Vita Vivet (50/1), Zoom Out (100/1)

Verdict

SHANGHAI GRACE sets a decent level here and after three career second including the last twice Charlie Hills three-year-old would be a most deserved winner. Newcomers may provide the biggest threat with Wise Words the most feared of them at this stage. Kingdom Of Dubai could yet do better for a top yard.
