Be Bold started 66/1 for the Super Sprint at Newbury last time and was never in contention. But he'd been in good form before that while both Anastazia and Dubai Breeze were well beaten in the same maiden race at Newmarket last time. Bronze Maquette finished well ahead of Arlecchino's Leap when runner-up over track and trip a fortnight ago and will figure with a similar effort but a chance is taken on ALPINE AFFAIR. He'll need to step up on his victory at Nottingham but that looks a strong possibility as he won by four lengths going away and gets the vote.
