Verdict

Plenty of these can be ruled out with confidence in this opener, but without doubt the one to beat is ZOFFEE. The selection finished runner-up to the potentially above-average Lord Lamington on his sole start over hurdles, and that horse has since gone onto frank the form when runner-up in a Grade 2 at Doncaster recently. There are a couple in here who are still of interest, namely Blacko who makes his debut on British soil for a yard who are well-known for their success with juveniles. Night Edition is also considered on stable debut given the form of the David Pipe team, and the fact he is related to the talented Melon. Chez Hans may also improve enough to feature.
