A few of these have decent claims but COURT ROOM may just have the edge with a recent debut under his belt. He ran on for fourth over a mile here last month and, like most of these, is stepping up in trip for this. Classic Devotion and Shama made their racecourse debuts on the Polytrack in November with the latter finishing third at Kempton. She should go close and is preferred to Bongo Beat, who improved to finish sixth over track and trip last time. Neither Magnus Romeo or Filosofo have shown any worthwhile form as yet and are probably best watched for now.
