Verdict

In the colours of Saturday's Lockinge hero Olympic Glory and with Frankie in the saddle, there will be high hopes for the Arcano newcomer Fuwairt in this opener. Offshore is worth a second look in the betting while Burning The Clocks is out of an Indian Ridge mare and related to a couple of winners so shouldn't be short of pace. Brian Meehan has won this twice in recent years and Lightning Stride will have learned plenty from his run at Newmarket. TOWN CRIER was a hot favourite on his debut at Lingfield but missed the break and then ran green. There should be plenty more to come from William Haggas' colt and he can recoup losses here.
