Forecast

State Of Rest (7/4), Elysium (3/1), Ebeko (16/5), Kauri Cliffs (10/1), You Owe Me Money (11/1), Stitch Pickings (12/1), Champagne Breath (12/1), Bela Boom (14/1), Lust For Life (20/1), Moonhall Girl (80/1)

Verdict
This looks to be an open renewal but preference is with EBEKO to land this on his way up to races further in trip. The two-year-old has been steadily progressive this season, and while he was no match in his race last time out here, it is likely that winner is a stakes prospect, so his effort looks better than on paper and this looks a much easier contest. The form standard is set by State Of Rest who seems to be precocious but has to give weight away all-round, while the likes of You Owe Me Money and Bela Boom showed promise on their debuts, notably the latter who bumped into a subsequent pattern winner, and are entitled to have come on significantly for those efforts.
