Motafaawit could be all the rage but his Newbury form is open to question. ZOFFEE looks a reasonable alternative.

Best Odds
Archies Lad
J: Barry McHugh
T: Richard Fahey
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
26,000 guineas yearling, dam Stirring Ballad a four-time turf winner back in 2012. This colt is making his debut today, and his yard can ready one first time out. One to watch in the market.
26,000gns yearling; first foal; dam Listed-placed 7f-7.5f winner (RPR 104); powerful yard
Bullion Boss
J: Callum Rodriguez
T: Michael Dods
Form: 3
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
€100,000 yearling. This son of War Command went into plenty of notebooks after staying on powerfully to grab third-place in a novice race at Ayr last time out. Respected here if building on that effort.
12-1, finished strongly from last when close third of nine in novice at Ayr (7f) on debut
Commanding Officer
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: K R Burke
Form: 4
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
€34,000 yearling, this colt by Poet’s Voice made a promising debut when fourth at York last month. Not discounted if building on that, and he has a Group 1 entry, so connections must feel he is fairly smart.
York debut showed significant ability but this demands fair bit more; Irish Group 1 entry
Nayef Road
J: Franny Norton
T: Mark Johnston
Form: 29
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
100,000 guineas yearling, closely related to French Listed placed filly Middle East. This colt was beaten by Motafaawit on his debut in June and failed to build on that performance when a distant ninth last time out. Questions to answer now.
Second of four in 7f Leicester novice but well beaten when 16-1 for maiden at Newmarket
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Tom Dascombe
Form: 33
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
100,000 guineas yearling, dam Mount Crystal a one-mile four-furlong Fibresand winner back in 2011. This colt has finished third in both of his starts to date, more needed to land this, but his yard does well with their juveniles here.
3rd in two 7f novice races, running on nicely from rear at Ffos Las; one to note
J: Tony Hamilton
T: Richard Fahey
Form: 73
Age: 2
Weight: 8-11
Half-sister to three-time turf winner Point Of Woods. This filly has shown very modest ability in her two starts to date. Needs to step forward on those efforts to feature in this company, but the extra furlong on offer here should suit.
Modest form at Carlisle (5f) and Pontefract (6f); she needs to leave that well behind her
Orrell Angel
J: Ben Curtis
T: David Loughnane
Age: 2
Weight: 8-11
Dam Stellar Express a six-time turf winner at trips ranging from seven furlongs to one-mile two and a half furlongs. This daughter of Dark Angel makes her debut today, and the market is likely the best guide to the strength of her chances.
28,000gns yearling, £6,000 2yo (private); trainer not known for winning 2yo newcomers
T: Richard Hannon
Form: 12
Age: 2
Weight: 9-8
T: James Bethell
