Billy Beetroot possesses the highest official rating but he looks vulnerable to the likes of Fatal Attraction, Aegean King, TRADE PRICE, Chris's Jem and Rathlin Light. Billy Beetroot has ability but he failed to get his head in front when dropped to plating class last time and looks vulnerable to anything of average ability. Chris's Jem left his debut form behind to run a 73 rated rival close at this track which brings him into the equation but he has to cope with a shorter trip. Aegean King was very green on debut but stayed on pleasingly once the penny dropped and he should be wiser now. The first two home are fair sorts and he has to be of interest but he's been done no favours by the draw. Fatal Attraction is from a successful family and showed up well for a long way at Lingfield; she should come on for that and could make the shake-up. Rathlin Light has a little more experience and improved markedly on her debut when going down by half a length at Kempton but the winner failed to frank the form in handicap company. Jamie Osborne has made a good start to the year and Trade Price made a satisfactory start to his career when behind Fatal Attraction at Lingfield. He has around four lengths to make up with Rae Guest's filly having run a very different race as he missed the break, got outpaced and ran green. He's bred to be effective at this trip however and that run will have done him the world of good and Trade Price may have made sufficient progress to enable him to go close.
