Audacity of Hope, Nideeb and KHATTAAB are three to consider here and the latter is a sporting selection to follow up an impressive maiden win. Audacity of Hope won as he liked at Doncaster last time, and he had run a bit free when beaten in a better event at Sandown previously. Kieran Fallon rode him with more restraint at Doncaster, and he is on board again, and he can go well despite this rise in class. Nideeb has already won at this level, and ran respectably in a Listed contest recently. He looks sure to be thereabouts. Out of a winning sprinter, Khattaab made a spectacular debut at Haydock, trouncing his field, which included an odds-on favourite, without being asked a serious question. Entered in the Dewhurst and the Guineas, Khattaab is very exciting and is worth siding with until beaten.
