A typically strong-looking Haydock novice contest, Lord Of The Lodge
sets the standard on his respectable run at Royal Ascot two starts ago but despite the likelihood of being a warm favourite, he could be vulnerable to some less exposed rivals. Centurion Song
is a typical improver for his yard while No Show
should appreciate the drop in trip. Gifted Ruler
can't be dismissed on debut either given his connections and impressive pedigree. Preference is for EMBOLDEN,
who should've won on debut had he not encountered a troubled passage and could be a smart colt for a powerful yard.
