Verdict

PISTOL found only one too good at Kempton on his recent debut. The form has worked well with both the winner and third-placed horse having subsequently won and Sir Michael Stoute's charge is preferred to New Youmzain. The latter should improve on his recent third at Salisbury while Hawkeshead ran well at Haydock last time though it's faster ground today. Dual bumper winner Anna's Arch makes his debut on the Flat and Seventh Sign will need to step up on his latest effort over C&D if he's to figure.
