Bold Cuffs won a Polytrack maiden last month and makes his debut on Turf today. He's likely to show further progress but will need to if he's to get the better of PADDYFROMMENLO. The latter got off the mark in a higher grade race at Chester a week ago, form that would make him the one to beat in this lesser company. Daliance and Highland Duke are others with scope but Dynastic and Gabrial's King look to be treading water off their current marks. Elkhart hasn't looked like winning so far this year and slips further down the weights as a consequence.
