La Napoule is likely to prove popular for the Hannon yard. But she's a sister to Nunthorpe winner La Cucuracha and the prolific sprinter Le Toreador amongst others so it's a bit of a surprise to see her debut over today's mile trip. Fellow newcomer In Seine is also related to a winning sprinter. Swivel drops back in trip after last week's introduction over 1m2f while Deano's Devil finished nowhere near the winner when third at Wolverhampton last month. BISHAN BEDI was also well beaten on his debut over a mile at Kempton but was still in contention at the furlong marker and it's likely he's improved since. He gets a tentative vote in this.
