Verdict

OFFBEAT SAFARIS finished a close-up second in a bumper on the Polytrack at Kempton on his debut. He had a subsequent winner behind so the form looks solid enough and Brendan Powell's charge can get off the mark here. Mist The Boat faded in the closing stages of his debut when fifth at Wetherby but ran well for a long way and can finish closer today. He makes more appeal than both Shufflewing, who didn't handle testing ground at Chepstow last time, and the well-beaten debutant Bollin Piper. The betting may give the best clue as to the chances of newcomer Nodividendsagain.
