4/7

Form of York fifth on debut in May worked out well by the time he reappeared at Chelmsford six months later where he won comfortably over 6f. Bred to stay at least a mile so should appreciate the extra 1f and can defy the penalty.

Speedily bred sort but looked in need of the run when seventh of 11 at Wolverhampton last month. In patient hands and likely better to come once sent handicapping.

From a yard that can do little wrong with their juveniles this year and this well-bred sort is sure to come on from his 7f Kempton debut. Knew his job, only gave way to a one who had run before; more to come receiving weight from Story Of Light.

62,000gns half-brother to Flat and hurdler winner Retro Valley and may well go over obstacles himself one day given the yard he hails from. Best watched here.

Camelot newcomer a full-brother to Fox Fearless, placed 7f-1m4f (inc at 2/AW). Not from a yard known for juvenile success so best watched today.

Son of Lawman gelded and fitted with the hood now after an effort not devoid of promise at Yarmouth in September. Each-way prospects now.

Well-beaten eighth and seventh placed finishes at Wolverhampton give him a bit to find. This yard always finds the key eventually but his day will likely come in handicaps.

Anjaal newcomer a half-brother to four winners including at Listed level in the UK and Group 2 in Hong Kong. Market can guide here but he rates the most intriguing newcomer.

Stoutly bred and looked a long term prospect when eighth of 11 here on debut last month. Best watched again.

Equiano newcomer a half-sister to 1m AW winner Litotes and 7f AW winner Ain't Talkin'. Would strongly suspect she will need the run here.

Betting

Forecast

Story Of Light (4/7), Harrison Point (11/4), Top Secret (8/1), Shoot The Moon (10/1), Giovanni Tiepolo (25/1), Magnificat (33/1), The Weed Machine (40/1), Kalimotxo (66/1), Note Bleu (66/1), Calamity May (66/1)

Verdict

STORY OF LIGHT looked a decidedly useful prospect at Chelmsford and the fact he is bred to be better still over 7f is reason enough to chance him despite the 6lb penalty. Far and away the biggest danger on form is Kempton second Harrison Point for the prolific Archie Watson yard. Debutant Top Secret could easily prove best of the rest.
