Verdict

Ratings point to Masked Dance holding the upper hand over ITALIAN TOM although Kankan Prince, along with the former, would provide a nicely named forecast option for the holiday crowd. The main concern regarding the chances of Kevin Ryan's charge is the going as a number of Captain Rio's progeny show a preference for a soft surface but he appeared to handle fast ground well enough on debut when chasing home the speedy Fratellino at Beverley. His three subsequent runs have been with cut in the ground or on fibresand and he's twice been a beaten favourite but it's to be hoped that the drop in grade and headgear have the desired effect. He currently has the same official mark as Italian Tom who is burdened with a penalty for a cosy success at this level before failing to cut the mustard in a nursery. He may have found the track too sharp for his liking at Lingfield when he got going all too late and he has less to prove for a yard that has had three winners from just four runners in juvenile sellers. One or two of the others have bits of form but they don't set the pulse racing so the newcomer, Kankan Prince, has to be considered. His pedigree suggests that this trip may be on the short side but his shrewd yard have a good record at this level so he's well worth considering but we'll take Italian Tom to take the plaudits.
