Verdict

No surprise to see the horse with the best recent form is RIOT OF COLOUR given Ralph Beckett has won three of the last four renewals. Today's representative finished runner-up in a big field at Newmarket on her reappearance and can go one better here. Keyaadi just failed to catch the winner at Thirsk on his recent debut and can figure along with Poole Harbour and Qannaas, if the latter pair are forgiven their latest below par efforts, while Well Painted is related to a host of winners and 95,000 euros purchase Niger is a half-brother to a Group 3 winner among others. Both are worth a second glance in the betting on their debuts.
