Verdict

BE BOLD is the obvious choice on his second to Escalating at Kempton as the latter went on to win at Ascot. The Hannon colt should be winning this on that form. Chetan disappointed at Warwick last time having showed a glimpse of promise on his debut at Brighton. He's still preferred to Cornwallville, well beaten in the Brocklesby at Doncaster on his introduction. Go White Lightning is a half-sister to a winner and makes more appeal than Fly Grazer.
