22/1

Smart novice hurdler during the winter and put in a respectable effort behind a smart horse two starts ago before failing to fire in 1m2f Pontefract maiden. Concedes a significant amount of weight to the field and needs to bounce back.

Made an encouraging start to his career when narrow second on his belated debut at Leicester (1m2f, good to firm) in July. Shaped as if the step up to this trip will pose no issue and is a leading contender.

Flattered when third over C&D on debut in July and was well-held on that occasion in a weak-looking contest. More significantly needed to be competitive.

Uninspiring start to career when 15L sixth in 1m2f Leicester novice in which Final Orders was second. Likely to improve with racing but plenty to find with to reverse form with that rival.

Improved from debut last year to finish a good second in Haydock novice contest (1m4f, heavy) in early June. Promising sort who is entitled to more progression. Claims.

Australia colt out of a dam who has produced multiple winners between 1m and 1m5f, including the versatile Pandora. Strong pedigree and notable if there is betting support.

80/1

Harbour Watch colt. Dam was unarmed but has produced some winners, most notably 12-time winner Space War. Pedigree suggests this trip would be a concern and yard doesn't seem to be in form. Best watched.

5/6

Regally bred colt who showed likeable improvement from debut to finish narrow second in 1m2f Windsor maiden on second start. Pedigree suggests step up to 1m4f should suit and is the one to beat on novice debut.

50/1

Showed little in two starts last season, including when 50/1 last of eight at Newcastle (7f, standard) in November. Has had wind surgery but offers little appeal.

Haafhd filly out of a dam who was a multiple winner between 1m4f-2m1f. This looks a tough ask on debut.

Betting

Forecast

Two Bids (5/6), Final Orders (2/1), Navajo Pass (4/1), Portofino (14/1), Magic Act (18/1), Beyond The Clouds (22/1), Dreadnoughtus (25/1), Archie's Sister (50/1), Flash Point (66/1), Profile Prince (80/1), Pound Off You (125/1)

Verdict

Experience could be key in what looks to be an informative contest and preference is for TWO BIDS, who may not have hit the heights his pedigree has suggested so far but has a good opportunity to break his duck for a combination who are thriving this season. It is likely to be close match between him and Final Orders, who exceeded expectations on his debut and may improve throughout the season, while Portofino has an attractive pedigree and could be an eye-catcher for future contests.
