A surprisingly low turnout for the opener and BEGGAR'S OPERA can take it at the expense of Frameit and Septemberintherain. The selection went into many notebooks on debut having ran exceptionally green but with promise. If the first sight of the racecourse has not been lost upon him, he could literally be anything. Frameit is one of two runners from the Stan Moore team. His run at Wolverhampton was disappointing though he had shown promise in two starts at this course previously. Septemberintherain is tried in a visor. He has achieved a rating of 72 so is the benchmark from which the assessor will work. Sweet Caroline has Michael Hills booked today. The daughter of Motivator was very easy to back on a back-end juvenile debut and is best watched until the market speaks otherwise. Beggar's Opera appears to have scared off much of the opposition and is selected accordingly.
