Un Ace bids to defy a penalty for his victory on the Polytrack at Lingfield last month and Killian Moore's claim will help his cause. Minellaforleisure was only beaten a head at Killarney on his debut last May while Bypass has already been placed at Wetherby and Catterick but there are a few nicely-bred newcomers lining up here who are just as interesting. PURPLE BAY is by Dubawi and a half-brother to useful Flat winners Outlandish and Swinging Sixties. He may well have too much pace for these if his breeding is a reliable guide. Bayley's Dream, Sir Toby Tyler and Wilde Blue Yonder are all worth watching for future reference.
