Verdict

Magnus Maximus can only improve on his debut third at Newbury and Richard Hughes prefers him to stablemates Manor Way and Strait Run, though the form doesn't look particularly strong and a number of the newcomers in this have attractive pedigrees. Belrog cost 110,000gns and Indus River was a 120,000 euros purchase and is a half-brother to three winners. Orion's Bow is closely related to the smart Heaven Sent among others while Roger Charlton trained the winner of this last year so Skilled also comes into the reckoning. FIELD OF FAME is from the same family as miler Maraaheb and looks a likely sort. He gets a tentative vote in a race which should provide several future clues.
