Verdict

It will be interesting to see how Saeed Bin Suroor's Five Cents shapes up in the market on his debut for a yard that can produce a two-year-old to win first time out but VALIANT KNIGHT sets a decent standard and he gets the vote ahead of Cash Queen Anna. The Barry Hills-trained filly has been placed in both starts so far in maidens at Newbury and Ripon on soft and fast ground and she has to be respected in this contest. Luca Cumani's Buffett should improve form his debut outing at Yarmouth but needs to, while Mick Channon's Interakt has shown ability but looks booked for a place at best having been turned over when a short-priced favourite at Brighton last time. With Andrew Balding's stable coming into form, Constant Contact has to be considered but his form is below that of his rivals. Mark Johnston's Bintalaleumydarlin ran better at Hamilton last time out and is another with claims but it is Valiant Knight that gets the vote. The son of Night Shift looks the clear pick of Richard Hannon's two runners ahead of Black Daddy following his improved efforts in his last two starts and he is taken to go one better than when chasing home Private Story at Sandown recently.
