Alisios, Hoon and Sherston are all likely to improve on their initial runs. Raise Your Gaze is the pick of those with previous experience, however, having only gone down by a neck to God Willing at Newbury last month. The third has franked the form since and he must go well but there are a few promising-looking debutants in opposition including Despot, Maverick Wave and Godolphin's Intense Effort, though the latter may do better as a three-year-old. FREEMASON has some fancy entries this autumn and fetched 150,000gns as a yearling. The Cape Cross colt can make a winning start.
