4/1
360,000 gns yearling, Night of Thunder colt who produced a promising first effort when third of 9 in maiden at Newbury (8f) on debut 17 days ago. Type to improve markedly with that under his belt.

€100,000 Fascinating Rock colt who ran to a fair level on debut when third of 6 in maiden (20/1) at Windsor (10f, good to firm) 9 days ago. More to come but draw could've been kinder.

€105,000 yearling, Adlerflug gelding who shaped with plenty of promise when third of 11 in maiden at Nottingham (10.2f, good to firm) on debut 18 days ago, well positioned. Entitled to do better.

22/1
Frankel colt who looked clueless when eleventh of 14 in minor event at Newbury (8f, heavy, 5/1) on debut 6 month ago, probably exaggerated by such testing ground. Should progress up in trip.

€600,000 yearling, Kingman colt who made an encouraging start albeit in need of the experience when fifth of 11 in maiden at Newmarket (8f, good to firm, 2/1) on debut 20 days ago. Better to come.

€160,000 yearling, Kodiac colt. Dam, 12.5f winner, half-sister to smart winner up to 1m Rutland Boy. Lots to like on breeding, so newcomer is not totally dismissed.

400/1
Twice-raced gelding. Fared no better than on debut after being gelded when ninth of 10 in minor event at Wolverhampton (8.6f, 200/1) 7 days ago. Looks out of his depth in this.

Fairly useful performer who progressed again upped markedly in trip when second of 6 in nursery at Wolverhampton (8.6f) on Boxing Day. Trainer's runners demand the utmost respect around here.

Only shown modest form in a couple of starts last year, failing to see her race out after making most at Kempton back in November. In good hands and she remains with potential.

Showed a bit on debut at Haydock in September but failed to repeat that effort when sixth at Newmarket on much more testing ground a month later. Significantly up in trip. Open to progress.

Forecasts

Kingsofthemidlands (10/11), Alfaadhel (4/1), Immelmann (6/1), Missile (17/2), Master Of Souls (12/1), Keeper (22/1), Solent Gateway (25/1), Fascinating Shadow (40/1), Rattling Rosie (125/1), Smart Boyo (400/1)

Verdict

Several potential improvers on show here with KINGOFTHEMIDLANDS getting the vote to build on his debut promise and make full use of stall 1. He will have learnt plenty from that initial outing and this step up in trip should suit. Alfaadhel wasn't knocked about when third on debut and he's feared most with significant progress on the cards, ahead of Immelmann and Solent Gateway.
