MABDHOOL caught the eye making up ground in the closing stages of his debut at Sandown. It was too late to get involved in the finish but, with a quicker start today, Marcus Tregoning's colt could be the one to beat. Truth Or Dare didn't fare too badly on his debut over 6f at this track but Richard Hannon also runs newcomer Cricklewood Green, whose dam is a half-sister to the high-class Strong Suit. Aristocracy is a half-brother to a couple of winners and there are some speedy sorts among My Anchor's five winning relatives.
