Mick Channon runs two and Golac, a half-brother to a couple of all-weather winners, is preferred to stablemate Effie B who was beaten five lengths in soft ground at Leicester on her debut. Bapak Bangsawan may be best when taking on longer trips judged on his breeding while Top Boy would be a rare two-year-old winner for his yard. MARSHLAND has four winning relatives including the useful Submariner and, providing he handles today's ground, the Kheleyf colt may be up to making a winning debut.
Bapak Bangsawan Pastoral Pursuits colt out of Nsx.
Golac Pastoral Pursuits colt out of Pretty Kool.
Marshland Kheleyf colt out of Neptune's Bride.
Top Boy Exceed And Excel colt out of Injaaz.
