Verdict

Red Dragon and Naalatt both have guaranteed fitness on their side after spending a successful time on the all-weather during the winter. Expect a decent account from the pair but there are a couple here who look to harbour considerable room for improvement. Zamoyski took a while to get the hang of things before scoring with something to spare at Goodwood last September when looking very much a three-year-old in the making and should be competitive here. However, this could be another for Hannon and Hughes with SEA SHANTY. He showed distinct promise in three strong maidens last term and is a likely improver - he starts the new campaign on an attractive handicap mark.
