Rides aplenty in the Black Country for champion jockey-chasing William Buick but Godolphin and Charlie Appleby only saddle one here for his debut.
The trio have been in fine form and perhaps this two-year-old, already gelded, can get life off to the best possible start in the Midlands, carrying a lovely pedigree.
He wears a hood and, despite a couple of these boasting experience ahead of him, makes great appeal on paper.

Even though he’s a favourite, 3/1 about the son of Helmet looks tidy value given the strength of his debut fifth at Newcastle back in May.
That included the subsequent Norfolk and French Group 1 winner, as well as a Listed victor at Sandown, form which has to merit respect on his reappearance here.
The step up to six furlongs should suit and he’s likely to take the beating if coming on for that run on Tyneside four months ago.
