Verdict

Both newcomers can boast winning relatives and the market may give the best clue to their relative chances. There doesn't look much between Regal Dan and Faithfilly on their placed form though the latter was sent off favourite and showed plenty of speed over 6f at Newcastle last time. Neither have been anywhere near soft going, however, unlike CLASSIC ART. The latter made his debut in better company at Ascot last month when staying on for sixth in testing ground and may find enough improvement to land this with that experience under his belt.
