Craggaknock is certainly the best of those with experience judged on his four-length defeat at Doncaster. He should figure if handling the slower ground but one of the newcomers won't have to be anything special to make a winning start and there's some likely types in this. Breeding suggests that Nakeeta and Power Up will need further to show their best but both Hunters Creek and Oasis Fantasy are related to plenty of winners and make some appeal. STAGEMANSHIP cost $275,000 and new Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby won with a newcomer at Ascot last week. The Pivotal colt gets the vote to follow suit in this.
