Forecast

Discovery Island (4/5), Blow Your Horn (9/4), Cemhaan (10/3), Yes My Boy (8/1), Dande (40/1), Mick (50/1), Motawaazy (66/1), Salad Days (125/1)

Verdict
Yes My Boy is a noteworthy debutant for Archie Watson while John Gosden's Cemhaan should fare better than on debut at Kempton, but the form standard is set by Blow Your Horn and DISCOVERY ISLAND. The Charlie Fellowes-trained Golden Horn colt made a very pleasing start to his racing career here (7f) last month when sticking on nicely behind Union (turned over at short odds last week). However, such is the exceptional strike-rate of Charlie Appleby-trained runners on the AW at Newcastle (13-30; 43%) his Dubawi gelding gets the nod.
