Henke made a bright start at Newcastle but didn't go as well on his next start at Thirsk. Il Paparazzi showed pace for a long way at Sandown but this should go to a newcomer. Kalahari Kingdom is the first foal of a 1m1f winner and big race entry suggests he's well regarded while everything Mark Johnston runs at present has to be respected and his two entries, Hartnell and Master Of Finance, are both well enough connected to be given a chance. Erroneous has several winning relatives in Italy and should have enough pace but the vote goes to GIANT SAMURAI, who cost 80,000gns as a two-year-old and is from a very smart family in the USA.
