Verdict

Hay Dude could have been found an easier debut so presumably he's shown some ability at home. He looks up against it, however, as all four of today's rivals are winners and proven in testing ground. Dual winner Oasis Cannes sets the standard with a second in Listed company in France last time and will be hard to beat but UNSINKABLE is taken to remain just that. He's won both starts to date over 6f, beating the progressive Tickle Time at Doncaster in July, and will need to win this if he's to take up his entry in next weekend's Group 2 Royal Lodge. Polar Chief and Willie The Whipper won on their debuts at Musselburgh and Hamilton respectively but will need a big step forward in this company.
