Forecast

Dark Scimitar (5/2), Cityzen Serg (3/1), Moohareeba (7/2), Pot Of Paint (9/2), The First King (7/1), Heaton Chapel (66/1), Apachito (150/1)

Verdict
Although it is difficult to assess the strength of the race he was second in on debut, The First King is respected as he has his first start on these shores. Dark Scimitar ran to a good level when runner-up over C&D recently, and if progressing again he should go extremely close to making it third time lucky. However, those with experience don't set an overly daunting standard, and so this looks a good opportunity for the well-bred MOOHAREEBA to make a winning racecourse debut. She is a half-sister to the same connections' Dubai Warrior who won a Group 3 at Lingfield last month. If she possesses even half the ability that horse does, she will take some stopping.
  1. Moohareeba
  2. Dark Scimitar
  3. The First King
