Cases can be made for all but CRAVAT improved for this trip at Newmarket last time when a close third to Amazing Storm, beaten just half a length. Expect him and Darnathean to make this a really good gallop with the Johnson charge taken to score as his form appeals as the stronger of the two. Darnathean certainly benefited from being asked to make all at Kempton and he'll be dangerous if as effective over the additional furlong. Kimbali only won a claimer last time but the step-up in trip and a fair mark for this nursery bow should see the Fahey colt involved. Bling King totes plenty of weight but his yard is in cracking form and he's not discounted, whilst Tight Lipped is a possible if forgiven a poor York effort latest.
