Emirates Airline (9/4), Markaz (7/2), Lysander The Greek (4/1), Fingal's Cave (7/1), Delusional (8/1), Rotherwick (14/1), Chevallier (16/1), Mutafarrej (20/1), Soldier Sam (33/1)
MARKAZ has the form in the book with a close-up fourth at Salisbury last time. That looks marginally better form than the placed effort of Fingal's Cave at Leicester and Barry Hills' charge gets the nod. Emirates Airline and Delusional are newcomers to note along with Chevallier, a half-brother to three winners. But Lysander The Greek is related to Group 3 winner Class Is Class and may prove a bigger threat on his racecourse debut.
