3/1

Looked a colt with a big future when winning his first three races as a juvenile, but was slightly disappointing when fourth of six in Group 1 company on Arc day at Longchamp. Reappears following wind surgery and may be able to bounce back.

Talented colt who won three times as a two-year-old, but produced a career-best display when a close fifth in a Grade 1 contest at Doncaster on final start. Solid chance in this slightly-easier contest.

Dual winner as a juvenile, but had his limitations exposed on final start at York. Tries his longest trip so far and stable looks to have two stronger contenders.

Easily best display in three starts last season when scooting home in a 6f Group 2 contest in France. Every chance this longer trip should suit so he looks a major contender.

9/2

Scraped home in a Nottingham novice contest before springing a 33-1 shock in a Group 3 race over C&D (Almufti well behind in third) in the autumn. Needs to take another step forward, but is dangerous to underestimate.

Has won his last two starts over 6f on the AW at Kempton. That form would be nowhere near good enough to land this, but he hails from a shrewd stable and this 7f test on turf could eke out considerable improvement.

Landed a 7f novice event at Yarmouth last summer, but found the step up to Listed company at Pontefract beyond him. Has been gelded since then and needs to find significant improvement.

Clear-cut winner twice over 6f last summer. Bred to stay this longer trip and cannot be ruled out, but stable looks to have a stronger candidate in Boitron.

Betting

Forecast

Hello Youmzain (5/2), Boitron (3/1), Great Scot (4/1), Mohaather (9/2), Urban Icon (7/1), Magic J (10/1), Almufti (16/1), No Nonsense (20/1), He'zanarab (33/1), Taylormade (100/1)

Verdict

Hello Youmzain makes the journey south with solid claims and is certainly one for the short list, but marginal preference is for BOITRON, who looked a colt of real quality before failing to run up to his best at Longchamp on Arc day. Great Scot is a second northern raider who enters calculations, while it would be dangerous to rule out Magic J, Mohaather, No Nonsense and Urban Icon, who surely have more to offer.
