Olly Stevens trained the winner of this last year and David Brown had the winner in 2012 so a market move for either Shackled N Drawn, who has Frankie on board, or Forcible would be interesting. It's unusual to see three two-year-olds in the same race carrying the Godolphin blue at this stage of the season and with Mickael Barzalona choosing BARCHAN it's the War Front colt who gets the nod ahead of Symbolic Star and the filly Elite Gardens. Kassbaan, a half-brother to a winning sprinter, could also go well but the market will probably indicate what's expected of the majority.
