Be Devious certainly wouldn't be winning out of turn here having been placed in all three starts to date, including when second on his debut over C&D in April. Alan Swinbank's charge is likely to be a short price, however, unless there is money for KOLAPHOS. Davy Condon has travelled over to ride Sabrina Harty's raider, who is a son of Kayf Tara so should have a future under NH rules. The one worry, given his pedigree, would be fast ground but the newcomer is still taken to come out on top. Aura Bora and Kauto Alcazar are others debutants worth watching for future reference with Great Roar and Wor Lass probably the pick of the remainder.
