DISCLAIMER kept on well for third in soft ground at Yarmouth last time. He'll benefit for today's extra furlong and can open his account at the chief expense of Lightning Launch. The latter made a promising debut at Sandown last month and is preferred to Rhombus, well beaten when unfancied on his introduction at Newmarket. Authorship is out of a prolific mare and can count the useful Dubai Prince among his winning relatives. He makes most appeal of the newcomers ahead of the 50,000euros filly Northern Star.
