A tricky start to proceedings as Are You Mine and Nickels And Dimes have already shown a decent level of form and, though thoroughly exposed, are likely to be thereabouts again. Martian was doing his best work at the finish on debut at Doncaster and will improve but WIZARA also has plenty of scope. She was the least fancied of three Godolphin runners at Newbury last month but shaped with plenty of promise when finishing fourth and can find the necessary improvement to get off the mark here. Angus Glens looks capable of picking up a maiden over this trip and Advisory should improve on his fifth at Carlisle but Diamond Mine is probably best watched on his belated racecourse debut.
