DICHATO was bought out of John Gosden's yard for 20,000gns in October and was having his first outing since July when debuting over 1m4f at Newcastle earlier in the month. He's entitled to come on for that run and improve for the fitting of a first-time visor on his second start for Stuart Williams. Andrew Balding's debutant Perfect Illusion sports a hood but is worth a market check, likewise fellow newcomer Victoria Drummond, who represents a stable capable of readying their string first time out.
PERFECT ILLUSION's pedigree is a mix of speed and stamina, but he's certainly bred to have a future and this doesn't appear to be a deep maiden. Victoria Drummond also makes appeal, for all her sales price dropped markedly from foal to yearling stage, while Dichato will go close if seeing out this trip.
