LEVEL BEST doesn't have any fancy entries as yet but it would be no surprise if he proved good enough on his debut in this company. He cost 190,000gns and is a half-brother to the Group 2 winning sprinter Utmost Respect. Wolverhampton runner-up Rapscallion Deep looks best of those with experience as he's less exposed than the returning Showtime Girl. The remainder are harder to fancy on what little they've shown to date, although Annie Gogh has a third at Thirsk last season to her credit.
