In depth

Verdict

Dirty Rascal showed promise when runner-up at Windsor on his debut though never troubled the winner while Dutch Treat ran green at Chepstow on her introduction and should finish closer. Of the newcomers, Gambon is bred for middle-distances but Walkman is related to a host of winning sprinters. Enough Already is related to speedy stablemate Laugh A Minute but MARHABA MILLIAR makes most appeal as John Gosden’s colt is a half-brother to Group 2 Lowther winner Queen Kindly and may well prove good enough to make a winning start.
