7/4

€27,000 yearling; green, but off to the perfect start when winning by a short-head on debut at Wetherby (5½f, good to firm) three weeks ago; there's every likelihood that this extra half furlong will suit, but does face different ground conditions.

Beaten 3L when finishing third on debut at Southwell (5f) in April; weakened quickly from the two furlong pole in a much stronger contest at Windsor the following month; still early days, albeit needs to bounce back.

60,000gns yearling; raced keenly on debut at Carlisle (5f, good to firm) and was found wanting at the business end when finishing 3L fifth of 11 to Rayong (a form-line which ties in with Coastal Miss through Star Of St James); trainer saddles two.

25,000gns vendor yearling; fourth foal; half-brother to the 1m4f winner Flicker Flame; dam was unplaced over 7f as a juvenile; others are far more obvious candidates.

Society Rock filly (£6,000 juvenile); out-ran her 66/1 odds on debut when finishing 5L second to the subsequent Salisbury winner Praxeology over C&D (good) a fortnight ago; needs more.

Betting

Forecast

Al Aakif (13/8), Coastal Mist (7/4), Silver Mission (11/4), What A Business (7/1), Just Jean (7/1), Constitutional (17/2), National League (14/1), Kilig (20/1), William Alexander (50/1)

Verdict

AL AAKIF did plenty wrong in the preliminaries at Nottingham but thankfully for connections, he also did plenty right in the race itself when making a smooth winning debut. Assuming that he is stronger and wiser for that initial racecourse experience, it's highly probable that he's capable of defying a penalty with that form already appearing solid (third-placed Tom Tulliver was a Yarmouth scorer next up).
