9/1

Cost 130,000 gns and should be capable of better than he showed on debut at Leicester earlier in the month. Was allowed to start at odds of 50/1 that day but unlikely to be so extravagantly priced if he's thrived since. One to monitor carefully.

9/2

Made a modest start over 1m at Salisbury last October but was slightly better when tried over the same trip at Newbury three weeks later. Not seen since but likely to appreciate this sterner test. Another to bear in mind if attracting support.

7/1

Cost 175,000 gns and made a pleasing start at Salisbury last October (Babbo's Boy well held in behind). Should be more to come and a big threat to all of he stays the additional half mile.

Yard is in good form but nothing too special about the gelding's pedigree; his dam did win over 1m5f and 2m, which suggests the trip could possibly be on the sharp side even now.

4/9

Cost 70,000 gns as a yearling, his dam was placed at Listed level over a mile but the overall pedigree says middle distances will be no problem. Yard going well just now and the progressive colt can play a strong role here.

50/1

Didn't manage to land a serious blow on debut at Leicester a fortnight ago and significant improvement is required this time.

50/1

Cost just €5,000 but still appeals on pedigree. However, the form of his debut run is feeble in comparison to some of the others. Very difficult to recommend at present.

Betting

Forecast

Sir Ron Priestley (4/9), Babbo's Boy (9/2), Global Express (7/1), Arthur Pendragon (9/1), Night Fury (33/1), Tidal Point (50/1), Two For Three (50/1), Soft Summer Rain (100/1)

Verdict

Not much strength in depth here and, given that Mark Johnston has his string in flying form at present, SIR RON PRIESTLEY could have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark. The son of dual Derby winner, Australia, can improve for the extra demands on his stamina in this modest company. Global Express has a similar profile and poses a big threat. Arthur Pendragon and Babbo's Boy are the pick of the remainder.
  1. Sir Ron Priestley

  3. Arthur Pendragon
