Verdict

YA WAYL is taken to score in this ordinary maiden, while Secret Millionaire could be the big danger. The latter has been put away since a promising debut in April which saw him finish runner up on fast ground at Nottingham. Being by Kyllachy he should handle some cut and there is every chance he could improve and take this. However, preference is for Ya Wayl, who has similar credentials. Michael Jarvis gave the Whipper colt a run at Windsor earlier in the month, and he is expected to come on plenty for that. Pedigree suggests that he will relish cut and he should have enough speed to handle the drop back in trip to take this. Reel Credit Crunch is another who shouldn't mind the going on her first try on anything but fast ground. She doesn't look to have the scope of some others though, so we will take her on. Goodbye Earl has some solid credentials but has not yet won and is vulnerable to an improver, and the same can be said of Mercers Row, so preference is for Ya Wayl.
