Only Smugglers Lane has experience of testing ground and he was beaten out of sight. A couple of these stand out on form with a tentative vote going to Nottingham third STAR CITIZEN in the hope that the Godolphin colt takes to the surface. Marcano also showed ability when making the frame on his debut at Newbury and should get involved. Mumford 's half-brother won in soft ground so he makes most appeal of the newcomers ahead of Critical Risk.
