29-5OR:

United States-bred Speightstown colt, with plenty winning for amongst pedigree. First-starter for Mark Johnston, 5-28 with two-year-old's so far this year. Commands respect here.

45,000 gns two-year-old, Sir Prancealot colt. Half-brother to useful 7f winner Warsaw Road. Yard 4-32 with two-year-old's in 2019, well capable of having one ready to roll.

Shamardal colt. Half-brother to useful juvenile 6f winner Swift Rose. Dam 7f/1m winner. Represents top connections on debut and likely to know the job well.

29-5OR:

Son of Harbour Watch out of a French juvenile winner. Cost €9,500 as a foal £5,000 as a yearling, finished third on debut at Wetherby over shorter trip last month, lacking a gear change. Possibly vulnerable to these newcomers.

Betting

Forecast

Ottoman Court (8/11), Port Winston (11/2), Homespin (13/2), Be Prepared (7/1), Oh Purple Reign (10/1), Dubai Station (25/1), Ropey Guest (66/1)

Verdict

Port Winston is the only one with form in the book, finishing third at Wetherby last month but leaving the impression he'll be vulnerable to something speedy again here. The market is going to prove vital but Charlie Appleby's string are really starting to fire lately and there's plenty going for OTTOMAN COURT on paper, ensuring he gets the nod to make a winning debut. Be Prepared, Dubai Station and Oh Purple Reign are also well worth noting on their first visits to the racecourse.
