13/8

€320,000 yearling; beaten at cramped odds by all the way winner Red Bond at Wolverhampton (1m½f) in January; better suited by stepping back up in trip, so every chance that he can better his debut second at Chelmsford (1m2f).

$40,000 yearling with plenty of stamina in his family line (dam an unraced half-sister to the St. Leger winner Millenary); repelled in a sustained tussle with Target Zone on debut at Kempton (1m).

€22,000 yearling; has experience of the Tapeta at Newcastle (7f) and should fare better now upped in trip - half-brother to the 1m2f-1m4f scorer Tilly's Chilli; needs to improve in order to trouble a couple in here.

Ran well (66/1) when runner-up on debut for this trainer here in December (1m) but not so effective in a similar race since (raced keenly); should stay 1m2f (dam a 2m hurdle winner) if electing to settle.

Well beaten on both starts at triple figure odds (1m-1m2f); can't see her filling anything other than fifth spot; look elsewhere with confidence.

Betting

Forecast

Battle Of Paradise (1/2), American Graffiti (13/8), Curfewed (33/1), Cormier (40/1), Amber (250/1), Forest Of Dean (N/A), Truckingby (N/A), Black Kraken (N/A), Awesomedude (N/A), Autumn Pride (N/A), Cirque Royal (N/A), Top Power (N/A), Three Castles (N/A), Persuading (N/A), Logician (N/A)

Verdict

A match between AMERICAN GRAFFITI and Battle of Paradise. The selection was beaten at short odds at Wolverhampton recently and naturally that goes down as a disappointing effort. However, there were mitigating circumstances and he steps back up in trip today at a more galloping track which provides him with every opportunity to shed the maiden tag at the third attempt.
