It's difficult to get past BANREENAHREENKAH in this after she finished third at Leicester on her recent debut. Denis Coakley's filly has little to fear from Al Emirati on the latter's eight-length defeat at Chepstow back in May so a newcomer could pose the biggest threat. Don Eduardo is a half-brother to a couple of two-year-old winners and on that basis makes more appeal than Honeymoon Express.
