Luca Cumani's newcomer Wistar is by Dubawi and may need this. Fellow debutant Mantou is just as interesting today and one of two Michael Bell runners. John Jenkins and Ed Dunlop are also double-handed and it's the latter who can come out on top with ZILBER preferred to Taqneen, who was very green at Newcastle. Jamie Spencer's mount could only muster the one pace when third in a Newmarket maiden in April but the extra furlong here will help and that's still the best form on offer. Matravers has scope but may need middle-distances.
