DARE TO ACHIEVE will be a warm order to open his account. William Haggas' colt finished a clear runner-up at Newbury last time behind subsequent Royal Ascot winner Remote and is hard to oppose in this company. The Welsh Wizard's latest effort also looks better in hindsight as he found only the Derby runner-up, Libertarian, too good over 1m2f here back in April and he makes more appeal than Sandown fifth Near Time and Astorgs Galaxy. Shalwa will be winning an easier maiden than this before long after a good effort at Newcastle last month.
