Classic Trial Guide

1. Alfaatik

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - Jim Crowley

This youngster did everything wrong really on debut, running green, idling when getting to the front but still holding on to score first time out.

This is a good sign as he is a talented colt that the master trainer can work his magic on and being blinkered for this race should help a bunch.

The win came on the all weather so he is unproven on turf but being out of Sea The Stars and bought for 850,000 gns he surely has a lot more to give and is worth a watch.

2. Bangkok

Trainer - Andrew Balding

Jockey - Silvestre De Sousa

The stand alone favourite comes from the thriving yard of Andrew Balding and with the champion flat jockey on board this horse has a great chance of keeping his unbeaten record for the season.

The three year old made his seasonal debut at Doncaster in a 17 runner maiden and was emphatic. The form of that run has also been franked with the second going on to win by eight the lengths next time out.

Could be a serious Group 1 contender if coming through this contest unscaved.

3. Kuwait Currency

Trainer - Richard Hannon

Jockey - Tom Marquand

Outsider of the field but holds plenty of potential but in this sphere might just find too many a bit to good on Friday with this being his toughest race to date.

Won a nice Listed race last year at Salisbury but when he has stepped up in better company since that race he has been found out and it looks very much to be the same in this one.

4. Persian Moon

Trainer - Mark Johnston

Jockey - Joe Fanning

This three year old can't be overlooked in the market winning three nice events last year and then placing in the Group 3 Acomb stakes at York which looks nice form.

Mark Johnston normally likes to get his horses really fit for their first race of the season and Persian Moon should be raring to go and a much more mature horse this year.

Each way chance

6. Technician

Trainer - Martyn Meade

Jockey - Oisin Murphy

This is a very lightly raced three year old who has only had two starts in his career and could be a seriously good horse this season if living up to the potential of his first two runs.

He finished third on debut behind some nice horses at Nottingham and then improved for that run when having his seasonal debut at Leicester and winning a novice event nicely.

Another one that could be in the mix on Friday.

7. Travel On

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - Frankie Dettori

The last horse entered into the contest is the second of John Gosden's in the race and Travel On made a superb start to the season confirming his promise as a juvenile.

He won nicely over 2 furlongs further than this at Lingfield on the all weather which looks a nice prep race to lead him into this and his trainer has won three of the last five renewals of this contest.
