This doesn't looks as strong as the first division so Leicester third Uprise should go close. Juvenal appears to be improving with experience but his future may lie in handicaps and Richard Hughes prefers the once-raced Golden Jubilee today. There are several promising newcomers in the starting line-up and they all have the scope to go on the better things. Dubawi Island is a half-brother to Group winners Bushman and Grand Vent, while Roger Charlton's Beat Hollow filly Dedication is from the same family as Derby winner Commander In Chief. Cubanita should thrive next year over middle-distances, but Edraaq may be better over shorter trips judged on his breeding so we'll take a chance on BONFIRE. Andrew Balding's juveniles are also worth noting here and this 90,000gns half-brother to Joviality and Burns Night could well prove a cut above average.
