Forecast

Western Starlet (11/4), Champagnesuperover (3/1), Offtheshoulder (7/2), Wetlands (7/2), Miraculous Getaway (9/2), Rompa Stompa (5/1), Paddy The Panda (25/1), That's Your Lottie (28/1), Claviere (50/1)

Verdict
WESTERN STARLET stands out on paper here given who is he related to and with this jockey booking being an extra positive, he may well be good enough to score on his debut. Wetlands has the benefit of one run already and can improve on that promising opening performance at Newcastle, while Champagnesuperover should be taken to hit the frame on his debut as he looks like he could be a smart prospect too.
  1. Western Starlet
  2. Wetlands
  3. Champagnesuperover
