Wellington Fair has looked a difficult ride unseating his rider soon after the start two outings ago and losing ground when his jockey was slow in removing the blindfold at Chepstow on his most recent start so he looks best watched in a race taken to go to the newcomer RACY, with Machine Gun Kelly looking the pick of the remainder. The selection would not need to be anything out of the ordinary to take a hand in the finish here but Sir Michael Stoute's colt is bred to be decent being a son of Medicean out of a Danzero mare and it would come as no surprise to see the Cheveley Park Stud-owned youngster making a winning debut. Richard Hannon's two-year-olds always warrant respect and Cereal Killer is no exception with the son of Xaar worthy of close inspection in the paddock. Gerard Butler's Swiss Cross needs to improve from the form shown on his debut if he is trouble the judge and of more interest may be Machine Gun Kelly. The son of Johannesburg showed an improved effort at Lingfield last time and looks the pick of Gary Moore's two runners ahead of Finch Flyer but there is no reason whey Racy will not be good enough to win this first time out and he gets the vote.
