Verdict

Citius has a winning half-brother and any support in the betting on his debut could prove significant as he makes more appeal than fellow newcomer I'm Watching. JUST PAST ANDOVER looks a safer option, however, as he built on a fourth in the Brocklesby when runner-up at Musselburgh last time in good to soft ground. Bill Turner's colt gets the vote ahead of Poetic Princess, who was a losing favourite at Wolverhampton on her latest start, though she was beaten less than a length and will be looking to make amends. Chilworth Icon has a bit of improving to do if he's to get involved and the remainder are hard to fancy.
