RED SHUTTLE will have come on for a belated seasonal debut over a mile at Yarmouth. A repeat of last year's placed effort over today's distance at Newmarket would be good enough to land this and Andi Brown's charge gets the nod. Megalala's recent placed form is misleading as he's yet to threaten the winner and Mizyen looks a bigger threat on his recent efforts on the Polytrack. Marju's Quest may well improve for the longer distance and make more appeal than Beau Select.
