Verdict

NAUTILUS looked in need of the experience when failing to keep a straight line on his recent debut at Lingfield. Sent off favourite, he still finished third ahead of Ihtikar and John Gosden's colt can make amends in this. King Munro will be winning this season judged on his third at Wolverhampton in October, while it would be no surprise to see an improved effort from Seamless on his reappearance. High Time Too has some catching up to do with the principals, but Royal Signaller is worth a second glance in the betting on his debut.
