DEVLIN is the only one with racecourse experience and looks the safest option. He finished a modest third on his debut at Musselburgh last month but showed enough to suggest a race of this nature is within his capabilities. Both Bapak Chinta and Master Of Ages hail from stables that win their fair share of these events and should be duly noted in the betting, while Frederick Engels is a half-brother to winning sprinters and should go well. Joshua The First makes little appeal on breeding and may be best watched.
