Verdict

Hillbilly Boy steps up a furlong having gone close at Bath last time and makes more appeal than Bapak Bangsawan. He may find the newcomer MAPUTO too good here though as the latter is a half-brother to six winners including Group 3 winner Pictavia. Tha'Ir is also related to a host of winners but Saeed Bin Suroor hasn't enjoyed any success at this track in the last five years and Richard Fahey's filly Mary's Daughter make more appeal. Look Forward looks nothing special on breeding though her yard won last year's renewal and she's not easily dismissed.
