Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

The well-bred KHAALIS is likely to have derived plenty from his opening effort here a fortnight ago and can strike at the second attempt. First Target isn't bred to need this far but needs respecting on debut given his connections, with Fortune Finder next on the list.

Betting Forecast

5/2 Khaalis (Ire), 10/3 First Target, 8/1 Small Pianist, 66/1 One Of The Girls (Ire), 200/1 Aqaareb (Ire), 11/1 Widaad, 4/1 Fortune Finder (Usa), 9/1 Salam Ya Faisal (Ire)
