SILLABUB is likely to be a warm order for the second division of this maiden having finished a promising third on her debut over 7f at Newmarket last month, where she was sent off joint favourite. The Queen's Handiwork ran green on his introduction at Southwell and should know more today while Argent Knight made late progress into fourth over a slightly longer trip at Wolverhampton last time, though he'll be qualified for handicaps after this. Camachoice and Tinghir are both nicely bred and represent shrewd trainers who should be able to find a race for them over the winter.
