This is tricky as Secret Missile has every chance on today's terms but has been finishing strongly over 6f of late and the drop back in distance is not sure to suit. Maid A Million has been slow out of the gate on her last couple of starts and that could count against her as she also drops back in trip while Pal Of The Cat will have to overcome a wide draw if he's to take up his usual position at the head of affairs. Royal Acquisition is related to winners and may figure on his debut but a chance is taken on fellow newcomer LADY COOPER whose dam won over 5f as a two-year-old.
