BOLD PREDICTION has been beaten only a head on his last couple of starts. He refused to go down without a fight on both occasions and deserves to get his head in front here after his latest defeat at Salisbury on Saturday. Shahdaroba should give him plenty to think about as he wasn't beaten far in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury last time and Saeed Bin Suroor won this with a newcomer last year so Tarbawi, whose dam is a half-sister to the outstanding Goldikova, is worth noting for any support in the betting. A half-brother to top-class sprinter Society Rock, Duke Of Orange is another debutant to keep an eye on.
