Hong Kong Island is a lightly raced three-year-old and could be of interest being dropped into a seller for the first time but he needs to improve on all known form to trouble CONO ZUR, who gets the vote over So Bazaar. Alan Swinbank's gelding drops into this grade again having been well held in a handicap at Haydock last time but he has to be respected having won a seller at Ripon in May and representing a stable that is in good heart. Mick Channon's runners in sellers are always worth a second look but Alfalevva has been struggling to win claimers and looks booked for a place at best. Fortunate Bid has been running creditably in handicaps but faces no easy task even in this grade, while any market support for King's Sabre would be of interest. Alan Bailey's Waabel has only had one start so far and could be a threat dropped into a seller having raced with credit in a Newmarket maiden first time up but Cono Zur looks the one to beat. Mark Johnston's colt is rare runner in the grade for his trainer and he looks worth siding with having shown some promise in maidens and handicaps.
