Showed marginal improvement from debut (fair form) when 2 lengths fifth of 6 at Epsom (7f) at the start of last month. However, it may be handicaps we see better from him in due course.

Foaled 18 Jan. Half-brother to Merry Me, won at 1m. Unplaced in both starts. Finished 2 1/4l behind Bodyline when fifth of 6 at 11-4 on his latest outing at Epsom over 7f (good) last month.

COGNAC showed plenty of speed to defy a wide berth at Musselburgh last month and makes plenty of appeal here from an inside draw. Mark Johnston's colt has a brilliant attitude and is preferred ahead of course winner Breathalyze, who accounted for The New Marwan over 7f here last month before finding just one too good over the same track and trip last time. Wild Hero offered more encouragement at Epsom 43 days ago and is also noted.

Tom Dascombe's Know No Limits has recorded form figures of 112 in three starts here and commands respect, while Lexi The One is admirably consistent and could show up well from stall six. Slight preference, though, is for recent Newmarket novice scorer POWERTRAIN, who could strike from his inside trap off what appears a workable mark. The son of Zoffany showed plenty of early pace last time, beating some well regarded sorts.

Noble Prospector will likely attract support after his victory at Wolverhampton off 3lb lower last month and should go well under Megan Nicholls once again, while Top Power is better than what he showed at Goodwood last time and could appreciate this drop in class. However, a chance is taken on recent Newmarket scorer TOROCHICA. Third in novice company at this venue on her penultimate outing, she can defy an opening handicap mark of 79.

Richard Fahey has won two of the last four runnings of this contest so any market support for 2016 hero Penwortham, Gabrial The Saint or hat-trick seeker International Man would be worth noting. Course winner Sir Maximilian is rated 1lb below his last winning mark and also commands respect, though MORAAWED is open to greater improvement and could feasibly leave behind his last run at Newmarket now encountering slower ground.
