MUTAKAYYEF was beaten on his racecourse debut at Newmarket in October but is held in high regard going by a list of fancy entries. He's Paul Hanagan's choice ahead of the newcomer Matalleb and gets the vote. The latter's trainer also introduces the 120,000gns colt Villainous while Elite Force and Sleeper are other newcomers to note. Brown Diamond made a promising start at Headquarters in September and Isabella Bird ran well at this track on her debut. Dursey Island has a shout on his narrow-margin defeat at Lingfield while Hanno showed enough last year to suggest he'll be winning before long.
