Haylah was narrowly beaten at Bath last time and Red Cymbal made a promising start when placed at Leicester on his debut. Both could figure but FAKHOOR (NAP) looks to have the strongest form given he finished in front of a couple of subsequent winners when runner-up at Kempton. Owen Burrows’ colt can land this with normal progress while Filbert Street is related to a couple of winners and makes most appeal of the newcomers.
