    Verdict

    Turnaround get the confident vote here with Chilali and Melandre the others for the shortlist. The selection made a promising debut at Haydock before finishing second in a decent maiden at Newcastle. He looks a nice progressive colt and with further improvement likely he is clearly the one to beat. Chilali was well beaten in a nursery at Doncaster last time behind Bibury Flyer and she also had the best of the draw previously at Chester when third behind Bold Minstrel. She will not be far away at the finish but others are preferred on this occasion. Melandre ran well for a long way at York last time before being passed inside the final furlong to finish fifth behind Distinctly Game. The third in that race Mimi Mouse has since gone on to frank the form so this filly is clearly one with a strong chance here. Of the remainder, Algorithm has her first run since joining Richard Fahey so she is worth noting in the market, but we will stick with Turnaround who looks to have a really solid chance.
