Ex John Gosden (sold for £26,000 in May); returns to the AW seeking a breakthrough success after an unsuccessful foray over hurdles.
Predictably struggled when sent off at odds of 125-1 on AW debut at Newcastle (1m4f novice) last month; better judged once sent handicapping; not one for today.
Tailed-off on bumper debut and well beaten in two subsequent starts on the Flat (7f-1m); is very difficult to enthuse over; readily opposed.
Zebedee gelding; 10-1 when fifth of eight to The Met on debut at Wolverhampton (7f) a fortnight ago; thought likely to improve for that initial racecourse experience.
Left Roger Varian for £18,000 in August; out of his depth on recent debut for Ollie Pears at Newcastle (1m) and it'll come as a surprise if he can reverse placings with the clear form pick Millicent Fawcett.
Helmet filly (3,500gns foal); slowly away and never on terms when last of seven on debut in a 7f maiden fillies' contest at Wolverhampton (66-1) 31 days ago; rates as an unlikely candidate.
Kingman filly, half-sister to the useful Richard Pankhurst; turned over at odds of 8-13f (today's rival Mosakhar behind) on recent return from a six-month absence at Newcastle (1m); sets the clear form standard nevertheless.

Millicent Fawcett (4/11), Mosakhar (9/2), Momtalik (10/1), Abwab (14/1), Memory Hill (16/1), Highland Sun (66/1), Berties Mission (100/1)
