Forecast

Fox Premier (13/8), Desirous (3/1), Boerhan (5/1), Sheila's Showcase (8/1), Ginger Fox (10/1), Jaleel (14/1), Barbarosa (16/1), House Of Kings (25/1), Four Mile Bridge (50/1), Sea Battle (66/1), Dark Impulse (250/1)

Verdict
Andrew Balding's expensive son of Frankel FOX PREMIER didn't really run up to expectations at Sandown on debut but it would be fair to say that almost nothing went right for him there. He should make significant improvement and gets the vote here. Sheila's Showcase made a promising start at Salisbury and should improve for stepping up in trip so he must be considered. Well-bred newcomers Desirous and Boerhan are both worth watching in the market and they both look likely to be classy sorts.
  1. Fox Premier
  2. Sheila's Showcase
  3. Desirous
