Forecast

Hot Team (8/13), Collegian (4/1), Metallic Black (9/2), Our Boy Zeus (12/1), Dreamseller (14/1), Good Looker (25/1), Forcetoreckon (33/1), Melgate Majeure (50/1), Poet's Delight (50/1), Northern Footsteps (100/1)

Verdict

HOT TEAM and Collegian look the safest options in an ordinary novices auction, with the former making the most appeal on the available evidence. The colt made a pleasing start at Haydock earlier in the month and, as the step down to 6f is countered by the stiff nature of this course, the Zoffany colt may be hard to master if he breaks on terms this time. Collegian represents powerful connections and, with the assistance of Paul Hannagan, makes more appeal than stablemate, Metallic Block, who is bred to be more effective over the minimum trip and may be one for the future. Dreamseller already has improvement to find but appeals as the best of the rest.
