Karl Burke has an excellent 11-36 record at this venue with two-year-olds and it would be no surprise if HIGHEST RANK knew his job on debut. A half-brother to Kreb's Cycle, who only need two starts to get off the mark, the son of Epaulette is bred to be an early, speedy type, and could be worth chancing in an open race. Finnion Fox showed glimpses of promise on racecourse bow and has to be considered, while Up Sticks And Go shaped as though further would be required when fourth at Hamilton last month.
None of those with previous form set an exacting standard so newcomer HIGHEST RANK may well be worth chancing. He makes appeal on paper and represents a yard boasting a 21% strike rate with their juveniles this term. Up Sticks And Go, Finnion Fox and Geesala Brave head up the shortlist.
