Bazooka was beaten a length over 6f at Kempton on his latest start and should be thereabouts stepping up in trip for the first time. The same can be said of Three Pips, who stayed on late to grab second over 6f here last month. But TRUANCY made the frame over today's trip at Kempton recently and it's Karl Burke's colt that's gets the speculative vote in an open contest. Classic Princess and Nissaki Kasta are fillies to note given both showed glimpses of promise on their respective debuts before posting poor efforts last time.
