SLEMY ran out of steam a couple of furlongs out when attempting to make all on his debut in soft ground at Nottingham. This shorter trip and faster surface will suit and Frankie can steer the Al Shaqab-owned colt to victory. Red Velour is another expected to step up from her debut effort at Newmarket earlier this month and it would be no surprise to see much better from Dynamic Vision with his yard in such good form. Native Heart has a bit of catching up to do but is still preferred to newcomer Crafty Business.
