BENGALI SPIRIT displayed inexperience when running second of three on his introduction at Musselburgh last month and while it's hard to know how strong that form is, he may be the answer with that experience under his belt. Arriba De Toda has enough speed in his pedigree to be worth a second look in the betting on his debut, while Brocklesby sixth Carey Street is respected but shaped as though needing a step up in trip on Town Moor.

DAWAALEEB had the third horse well behind when edging out a Newmarket raider at Newcastle last month and is taken to go in again. Les Eyre's charge was wearing a first-time visor on that occasion and the headgear is on again. Society Red should be sharper for a recent spin around Chelmsford, while both Frankster and Pioneering ended the last campaign with victory around here and make the shortlist.

Getting on in years now but still capable of useful form last year. Suspicion he may need this first run of the season but market probably the best guide to expectations.

Has won 11 races from 5f to 6f on ground varying from good to firm to soft. Finished 4l behind Perfect Pasture when fourth of 9 at 15-2 on his latest outing at Nottingham over 5f (soft) in November last year.

ATLETICO is proving very hard to win with, compromising his chances with an inability to break away on terms, as a string of silver-medal finishes on the all-weather illustrates. Roger Varian's gelding is, however, able to run off a rating 10lb below his all-weather mark and can gain an overdue success with Silvestre De Sousa taking over in the saddle. Zylan seeks a hat-trick after a brace on Southwell's Fibresand, but he is better on artificial surfaces and course-and-distance winner Poyle Vinnie, second at Chelmsford recently, appeals as the principal danger to the selection.
