The opening contest on the card is an average maiden with ten runners going to post and we feel CEREAL KILLER can out point Home Advantage and Fireback. The Richard Hannon team remain in good form and can hopefully send out another winner here. The selection had three starts as a juvenile and improved with each run. His latest start behind Carnaby Street reads very well in the context of this race. The step up in trip should suit and the son of Xaar should go close if fit. Roger Charlton's Home Advantage may give the selection most to think about. He only had the one start at two and was beaten out of sight but took a huge step forward when sixth in a half decent maiden at Wolverhampton. The drop in trip will not be ideal but this is a poor race. Firebreak is also another to mention as he progressed with all starts as a two-year-old. He looked like the type to make a better three-year-old and must be considered for a yard going well enough. Bintalwaadi from the Ed Dunlop yard is another to note after a decent start to his career in a heavy ground maiden. Michael Bell's Conceptual Art is another to mention and must be monitored in the betting in a race where the market should be used as a selection tool.
