Verdict

SHOLAAN finished fourth at Chester on his latest start. A winner has already come out of the race and that form, coupled with the excellent strike rate of his yard at this track, earns him the vote. He's just preferred to Talk Of The North, who found only one too good when sent off favourite at Lingfield recently. Shotley Music was placed on his debut here and better is expected from Kung Hei Fat Choy, who attempted to make all at Doncaster on his first start. Captivity should appreciate the extra furlong having failed to figure at this track on his debut and another Godolphin colt, Al Saham, along with Peter Anders, are newcomers to keep an eye on.
