Dombra and Pablo Escobarr are very interesting newcomers for powerful yards, and CERTAIN LAD carries a 3lb penalty, but there was a lot to like about the way he powered clear on his debut at Redcar over 6f, and there should be more to come as he goes up in trip. Hugo Palmer does really well here with his 2yos and Dombra could be the main threat.[Ben Hutton]

Carries 3lb penalty against some interesting rivals but he powered clear to make a winning debut at Redcar (6f, good to firm) last month, beating a runner-up who has since gone one better, and pedigree suggests he'll be suited by today's trip even at this early stage of his career; strong claims.

200,000euros yearling; fourth foal; brother to 1m2f winner Jetstream (RPR 78); dam 5f-7f winner (including 2yo/Group 3), out of French Oaks second; represents powerful 2yo stable and he's an interesting newcomer, particularly if attracting market support.

By Frankel, and second foal of a dam who won 1m Group 3; represents good Newmarket trainer who is 7-14 (50%) with his 2yos at this course; respected on debut, all the more so if strong in the betting; wears a tongue-tie.

17,000gns foal, 45,000gns yearling; sixth foal; half-brother to Footman, placed 7f-1m4f (RPR 86), and unraced dam is related to winners; fairly local trainer has 13% strike-rate with 2yos here in last five years, and has unleashed some useful juveniles here; betting should be informative.

£85,000 yearling who is in good hands, and is bred to be suited by this step up in trip on his second start; no surprise if he leaves behind his recent debut at Leicester (6f, good; 7-1), but having been soundly beaten in eighth quite a lot more is required today.

Brother/half-brother to some talented winners and this trip could be more suitable than Chester's sharp 5f, over which he made his debut last month (sent of 16-1); however, plenty of improvement is needed and stable jockey Richard Kingscote rides newcomer Drogon.
