7/4
16/5 and cheekpieces on for 1st time, first run since leaving Hugo Palmer when good second of 7 in handicap at Leicester (11.8f, good to firm) 32 days ago, taking time to get going. That form is solid and he makes plenty of appeal.

10/3
Thrice-raced maiden. Third of 8 in maiden (5/2) at Salisbury (12f, good to firm) 17 days ago. Up in trip. Bred to do better and looks the type to relish this longer trip on handicap debut, so one to note.

Forecasts

Nova Legend (7/4), Havaila (10/3), Mugader (4/1), Highland Frolic (6/1), Levitate (10/1), Buxted Reel (14/1)

Verdict

NOVA LEGEND shaped well when splitting a couple of subsequent winners on debut for his current yard at Leicester a month ago, so he's well worth a chance to go one better. A solid showing from Buxted Reel seems likely but it might be the well-bred Havaila who troubles the selection most, with the longer trip sure to suit him.
