Verdict

Those with experience are impossible to fancy as Big City Boy has failed to beat a rival in four starts while Mayforde Jack and Reggie Rabbit have been beaten out of sight so far. So this looks between the newcomers and LIGNUM VITAE stands out among that trio. Richard Fahey's charge is a half-brother to six winners including Listed winner Triskel and Trafalgar Square, who was successful on the all-weather and may well be good enough to score on his debut. Pereira's breeding suggests she'll relish today's distance more than Welsh Sunrise and looks next best.
