The Bishops Baby probably has the best form among those to have raced previously and Edgar Byrne's gelding showed improved form when third at Kempton last time but he may not represent much in the way of value and it may be worth chancing one of the newcomers with CASHPOINT preferred to Moscow Chieftain. Tim Vaughan's gelding is well bred being a son of Moscow Society and the yard is more than capable of producing one to win first time out. Charlie Longsdon's Alesandro Mantegna has shown a fair level of form in both starts so far and has to be respected as does David Bridgewater's The Giant Bolster, who made a pleasing debut at Stratford earlier this month. Hugh Collingridge's Peachey Moment ran better on the Polytrack at Lingfield last time and would have every chance if able to reproduce similar form back on turf. The vote though goes to Henrietta Knight's Cashpoint, who makes plenty of appeal on pedigree being a son of Fantastic Light and from a yard that has to be respected in this grade. He may be good enough to make a winning debut.
