Verdict

FLOATING BALLERINO finished ahead of a subsequent winner when fourth at Newbury last month. He won't need to improve on that to come out best in this company and get off the mark. The remainder with experience make no appeal on what little they've shown so far but Jeremy Noseda's strike rate here suggests his newcomer Yellow Emperor is worth a second glance in the betting. Walta is a half-brother to three winners and is another debutant to note.
