Red Orator is a half-brother to a winning sprinter and any strong support on his debut should be noted as his stablemate Captivity beat MUNIFICENCE at Wolverhampton recently when the latter finished third. However, Marco Botti's charge was making his debut on that occasion and with that experience to draw on, he's fancied to go one better here. Oneiric and Avon Supreme are similar in that they both have past form that entitles them to consideration but are much harder to fancy on the evidence of their more recent modest efforts.
