The four-year-old Mount Shamsan is related to a Listed winner and makes a belated racecourse debut. He's worth noting along with fellow newcomer Court Room. Sea Here finished much closer over track and trip in November than his finishing position of sixth would suggest while Shafrah is another likely to improve on last season's efforts that included a second at Leicester. But L'IMPORTANTE made his debut in a stronger maiden race at Newmarket last summer behind the likes of Jallota and subsequent Group 3 winner Brown Sugar and it's Marco Botti's colt that get the nod stepping up in trip for this.
