KATZOFF has the best form of these with a debut fourth at Lingield when beaten only a length. He faltered in the closing stages on that occasion and this shorter trip should suit the Hannon colt. Arbiter and St Just represent powerful yards but neither have threatened so far while the likes of September Power, Iron Heart and Sky Commander were all well beaten on their respective debuts. Golden Fountain is a half-brother to the smart handicapper Kynren and worth a second glance.
