Great news if he wins
I'm going to try something a little different in picking out a bet with the debutant Great News.
Trained by Saeed bin Suroor, he is out of the Lowther winner Nahoodh and two of the three winners she has produced so far both landed a race first time up. The other, this horse's full-brother Hawkesbury, finished second.

Trip could suit Aljaryaal
This doesn't look much of a race. Bobby Kennedy has some recent placed form, but his second was steadily run recently and he has to go up in trip.
The new stamina test could suit Aljaryaal, and I give him a chance to show a bit more than we've seen already.
