A open looking race. Cruella De Vill ran well last time out. Not been seen for a long time. Has claims although not great value. Finest Leader was a high stat horse last time out. A nice strong looking horse who showed up well before tiring in the closing stages. This six furlong will be much faster and it could well favour Charlton's horse. A low draw is a plus. Bookmaker's have James Ferguson's Beelzebub, who was behind Finest Leader, as a shorter price. Could well improve for the run and a costly purchase. Has decent stats if 13/2 and less sp. Fifty Year Storm was fancied on debut and cost a decent amount of money. Ran well enough that day if not going a stride too fast. The betting should tell the story today and has decent stats if 13/2 and less sp. Basically no hope of winning if over 11/1.

Tagabawa is a high stat horse but no real value. Glorious Lion has a group entry and well backed on debut. It was something of a disappointing effort but better may be expected. Stepping up in distance and in a fancied betting guide gives ew claims. Roost was a high stat horse on debut but being a small race was probably forced. Difficult horse to assess but Beckett can go well sto especially if 13/2 and less sp. Galiilaeous was half fancied on debut at 9/2. A slow start gave little hope but a very well bred horse and costly purchase. Once again would have decent stats if backed to 13/2 and less sp but Beckett has had sto winners up to 40/1. Mr Mistoffelees was half fancied on debut and tailed off. However, there has been money for this well bred colt which gives the impression better is expected. Alex The Great was relatively fancied on debut when racing at class 2. A costly purchase and well owned. It isn't beyond the realms there could be better seen today although at this time a 33/1. Would have to be substantially backed to have any hope. To be fair, not the easiest of races to assess. The betting nearer the off may help but a few of these need to improve.

Isle Of Jura is a high stat horse. Wide draw. No real value. Intricacy would be a high stat horse if 11/4 and less sp. Bohemian Breeze has a class 2 stakes entry. Run well on both starts and a touch wide last time. Looks the type to lead or sit handy and capable. Zodiac Star is a good looking colt. A touch keen last time out but a horse which looks capable and should go well. Luna Effect was a high stat horse last time out when keen and disappointing. May be capable of better but a giant price today which may be telling. Best watched unless you fancy a punt. The betting nearer the off may help pick between the lines. Doesn't look the easiest race to assess at the time of writing.
