Placed on Haydock debut in June. Found the Chesham at Royal Ascot too much next time but should fare better in these calmer waters.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Some good stables represented in an interesting opener. SOFT WHISPER shaped nicely on her Salisbury debut 3 weeks ago and gets the nod but Clarendon Cross isn't too far behind her on his debut effort, while market support for one or more of the newcomers would bring them into the reckoning.

Betting Forecast

11/4 Soft Whisper (Ire), 5/1 Cloudbridge (Usa), 4/1 Clarendon Cross, 7/1 Thunderstone (Ire), 12/1 River Alwen (Ire), 12/1 Pool Bar Lady
