ALMINOOR produced a battling display from the front on debut at Musselburgh, only going down by a neck. With the trainer of the winner talking in terms of Royal Ascot for his horse, expect Mark Johnston's charge to bag the rail and try to dominate this from the front. Danny Ocean could come on for a decent first effort at Leicester, while David O'Meara's Dandy Man colt Manolith might be the pick of the newcomers.

Space Bandit has won two of his last three on the Southwell all-weather so has to enter the reckoning. He is unproven on turf, though, so perhaps is worth taking on with COTE D'AZUR. Les Eyre's gelding signed off last season with a fair fourth at Redcar and returned to action with a similar display at Doncaster. Down in trip for this, he could relish the stiff finish here. Delph Crescent was disappointing on his reappearance at Doncaster but has claims on last year's form.

FOOLAAD won this race last year and produced an excellent display to make all at Doncaster most recently. Roy Bowring's charge is up 3lb for that latest effort but could strike at a track that evidently suits him. Sandra's Secret was second in Listed company when last seen and must be considered, while Watchable got back to winning ways at Lingfield last month and is another to note. Returnees Powerallied and War Whisper also have claims.

Tynecastle Park has been a revelation at Southwell of late, winning his last two with Galileo's Spear well in arrears on both occasions. He has to be considered despite a poor record on turf, but could be worth taking on with BRANDY JAMES. Harry Whittington's charge is very lightly raced on the Flat, but ran off a mark of 114 over timber last time and may relish this extreme test of stamina. Rubenesque also ran off a mark of 114 when last seen over hurdles, but she lost her action that day and reappears just 12 days later in this.
