Expert probably faced a hopeless task behind his illustrious stablemate, Toormore, at Goodwood and he will be more at home in this company but we prefer the claims of SPEEDY APPROACH. Michael Bell's colt dotted up in a Doncaster maiden on his latest start and he looks the type that should make up into a decent three-year-old next term. Somewhat is sure to have his supporters as he has an official rating of 102. Mark Johnston's colt followed up a solid run in the Chesham Stakes with a fine effort when upped in class in the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket. Noble Metal would need to reverse form with him in order to win this, while Be Ready represents a stable that have won this race before so he has to be respected despite having never seen a racecourse in public.
