Musical Slave showed plenty of promise on debut when sixth in a hot bumper at the Punchestown festival in April, and he is feared most now switched to hurdles.

Barry Geraghty comes over for the ride and the pair can account for Euxton Lane, who made a debut full of promise in a NH flat race at Bangor last month when third, and 3 New Quay, who represents a handler that is 23-71 with hurdlers at this venue in the last five years.

He was perhaps in front just a little too soon that day and today's shorter home straight should allow him to get the necessary cover and lead into the race. Storm Home was well backed when second here last time and a step up in trip should suit. He rates the main danger here, while local handlers Paul Nicholls and Harry Fry have to be respected saddling Captain Cattistock and As I See It respectively.

All have the potential to make decent sorts around here, and they have okay draws, but the first named is the only one who has proved he can do it at Meydan, so he's the pick.

Briscola is respected but the well-bred BEST BLUE 10% may be the answer. Msaikah is an interesting newcomer who needs to be monitored for market confidence.

Race Results:1st (8) Noble Expression 7/2 JFavJack MitchellR Varian 2nd (3) Best Blue 4/1 3rd (7) Nibras Galaxy (IRE) 10/1 BEST BLUE 10% represents a handler that is 4-18 with his two-year-olds at this venue and this 210,000gns yearling is bred to improve on what he showed at Nottingham earlier this month. The first foal out of a sister to Derby winner Australia, he can get the better of Briscola, who looks to be slowly learning her job and looks better equipped for success than stablemate and newcomer Hasanoanda. 300,000gns yearling Msaikah is another nicely-bred debutant who is certainly worthy of a betting check.

Race Results:1st (3) Lucky Deal 5/1S De SousaM Johnston Despite a string of seconds, there is nothing wrong with Bubble And Squeak's attitude and she deserves to go one better. She has a perfectly good chance on adjusted figures but this is her first run against the boys and her three rivals are all open to progress. Therefore she looks a shade vulnerable and preference is for WISSAHICKON 58.5%, who should build on his Wolverhampton debut success. 1 Lucky Deal and Future Score are both interesting upped in trip.

Race Results:1st (3) Lucky Deal 5/1S De SousaM Johnston WISSAHICKON 58.5% overcame his obvious inexperience when making a winning debut at Wolverhampton and he looks another promising type for the John Gosden operation. A beautifully-bred son of Tapit, he finished his race off really well at Dunstall Park and should be much more streetwise this time around. Bubble And Squeak has finished second in each of her four starts to date and her official rating of 84 suggests she will lay down another bold bid, while 1 Lucky Deal shaped with promise on his Redcar debut.

He was denied a clear run when last sighted over 1m at Lingfield but can be given another chance in the hope he enjoys a better passage this time. Show Stealer was left with too much to do over 6f at Kempton and is well worth another try over this longer trip, while Rajar offered more at Wolverhampton last time and could also take a hand.

Race Results:1st (6) Captain Lars (SAF) 10/1P MathersD Shaw 2nd (3) Captain Bob (IRE) 8/1 A lot will depend on how much ability Golden Steps retains. He's back from an absence and hasn't raced in Britain since July 2016, but that last appearance resulted in his Bunbury Cup success. He has to be respected, especially if the market speaks in his favour. All of the other older runners failed to show their form last time out, so it may be worth siding with the 3yo filly DREAM START 28.57%. She has been running respectably in the main and it's best to forgive her latest effort when things didn't go her way. She may well open her account if Golden Steps underperforms.

Captain Lars has won in this grade in the past and is another to consider dropping in class having performed better than his form figure suggests in a Southwell handicap last time.

He still looks feasibly treated now back in a 1m handicap and may be able to dominate again to make it 2-2 since a hood has been added. The main dangers are 1 Anna Medici, who could resume her progress if cheekpieces work, and 2 Dor's Law, who finished placed in a pair of 1m handicaps last month and didn't really get the breaks at Wolverhampton last time.
