Verdict

YAA SALAM wasn't strongly fancied for his debut at Yarmouth last month, but he ran on well for third-place and normal improvement could make him the one to beat. Prince Alzain also showed promise on his first start at Kempton and is another to consider, along with Eurystheus, who steps up a furlong after his recent fourth at Ascot. Counsel's sixth at Leicester on his debut leaves him with a bit to find with the leading contenders but he's sure to improve and could be thereabouts.
