The Godolphin colt FAST DELIVERY looks the one to beat in this. Runner-up in a maiden race at Nottingham on his return, that looks much stronger form than any of today's opposition has to offer. Serata Di Gala wasn't beaten far in a modest contest at Leicester back in July but Leftrightleftright was tailed off on his recent debut. Highland Rebel is a half-brother to a winner in Italy and makes more appeal than the other newcomer Notgordonitsrodger.
