Iffraaj colt, cost 32,000 gns as a foal and £105,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to 14 winners including a Grade 2 winner. Trainer and jockey teamed up with a newcomer here yesterday and this runner makes some appeal on paper; interesting.

Make Believe colt, cost 27,000 gns as a foal. Dam a winner over further and both sister to a juvenile winner over this trip and half-sister to a Group performer. Yard's runner can need the experience and others preferred here.

Mustajeeb colt, dam a 7f winner as a juvenile and half-sister to three winners. Showed very little on debut and hard to fancy on that evidence.

Kodiac colt, cost £21,000 as a yearling. Brother to a winner over this trip. Dam won over 1m in Italy. Shaped nicely on debut at Pontefract and may appreciate the step up in trip here. Each-way claims with experience under his belt.

Dark Angel colt, dam a juvenile winner and half-sister to a pair of Group 2 winners and a St Leger runner-up. Yard do particularly well with their juveniles and he's worth considering here, though may do better over a little further.

Fountain Of Youth gelding, cost £15,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to two winning sprinters. Dam a half-sister to a Group 2 winner over this trip. Bred for this but showed nothing on debut at Pontefract last month and hard to fancy here.

Lawman colt, cost €50,000 as a yearling. Dam a half-sister to a Group 1 winning miler. Only narrowly denied on debut but step up in trip will help here; may do a little better when tried with some cut in the ground.

Betting

Forecast

Story Of Light (11/8), Hong Kong (7/4), When Comes Here (3/1), Repartee (9/2), My Kinda Day (8/1), Today Power (8/1), Boma Green (10/1), Galactic Glow (10/1), River of Kings (20/1), Forbidden Land (25/1), Herbert Pocket (33/1), Must Dream (50/1), Vardon Flyer (100/1), Stittenham (100/1), Dorcha Knight (100/1)

Verdict

A competitive renewal of this race but it's hard to ignore the claims of the expensively bought HONG KONG. While Aidan O'Brien's runners can be in need to their debut, it's unlikely he would send such a well bred sort over if he couldn't do himself justice and he's beautifully bred. Charlie Appleby's record with juveniles is always worth noting and he saddles Story Of Light who makes some appeal. Repartee is another well bred newcomer well worth noting in the market.
