Lord Bertie sets a decent standard but no price. Elraad has a group entry and Owen Burrows is a very good trainer. However, his debutantes are generally placed rather than winners at at relatively short odds something to consider. Acotango was a high stat horse last time out but put in his place the winner. Not without ability but can't help feeling the favourites will take the beating. Frequent Flyer hails from a stable who are in form and can go very well sto. If 9/1 and less has decent ew claims.
Conclusion: With two short priced favourites there may be value elsewhere. Acotango ran pretty well last time out and should appreciate this greater test of stamina. May have ew claims but may well be up against Lord Bertie.

Kyeema ran well last time although slightly disappointed as an odds-on shot. Tired in the closing stages which may be a worry here. I can't say I would be rushing out to bet at short odds but each to their own. Tango Man cost a fortune and comes from a stable and owner that can do very well on debut. Could go well but at short odds may give little value. Think First would need to be priced 11/4 and less to have high hopes. Very few from this stable win at double-figure odds on debut. Mahalik was relatively fancied on debut when doing little. Always worth noting Burke's horses sto in case they are substantially backed. Would have a live chance if priced 13/2 and less.
Conclusion: Interested in seeing how Tango Man goes.

No great opinion. Be nice to see Julia Feilden get a win.

Ferrari Queen is short priced to defy the penalty. Fariba has size and scope for a filly. Ran pretty well on debut and should improve. Not giving much away on the price. Interesting if Harry Dunlop's Bingley Crocker comes back to form after disappointing last time when the trainer's rep said the going was too fast. Difficult to know what to think. Ninetynineproblems has a class 2 entry which gives hope but the trainer doesn't seem to have much in the way of winners so best watched unless you fancy a speculative punt.
Conclusion: Not giving anything away on the two favourite who should go well. Ninetynineproblems may have aglimmer of hope at giant odds but looks unlikely. Bingley Crocker may have a hope if showing debut form but may have been flattered that day. Can't help thinking the favourite will go well.

Two short priced favourites. The only hope from a stat point of view would be Ed Walker's Amichi if 13/2 and less sp. Looks unlikely to happen but not impossible.
Conclusion: Can't see much hope of a bet here.
