    In depth


    There is no form for backers to go on here and what can only be a tentative vote goes to Karayel, who is preferred to La Neige and Calloff The Search. The selection makes plenty of appeal on pedigree being an early foaled son of Fasliyev and, being trained by Richard Hannon, is likely to be forward enough to know what is required. Bill Turner's youngsters normally do well early season so River Prince has to be respected along with David Barron's Me And Mine, who was foaled as early as 3 January and hails from a yard that has started off the season in good form. Mick Channon's La Neige has to be respected, while Calloff The Search looks the pick of the Turner horses on pedigree and is another that merits close attention. Karayel makes most appeal though and he gets the vote.
