OASIS CANNES clearly appreciated the step up to 7f at Musselburgh and will almost certainly stay further. He can make good use of his proven stamina to get off the mark here though Kingsville should prove a lot better than he showed over 6f here last month. Aseela made a promising start at Leicester and has a stamina-packed pedigree but she may make a better three-year-old, though is still preferred to Newmarket sixth Kalicamix and newcomers Bitter Ale and Just A Pound.
Bitter Ale Auction House colt out of Pesse.
Just A Pound (IRE) Ad Valorem colt out of Gallery Breeze.
Kalicamix 25-1 (9-3) Went right start, raced with winner more towards centre, well on terms until ridden and outpaced inside final 2f, stayed on again inside final furlong, 6th of 11, 6l behind Tipping Over (8-12) at Newmarket 6f 2yo mdn (4) gs in Jun.
