Despite carrying a penalty, AZZA is likely to be a short price for this on her UK debut. She won a Fillies' Listed hurdle at Auteuil last month on soft ground and David Pipe will get the best out of her. Most Honourable should improve on his fourth at Perth but Major Parkes didn't show much at Ludlow earlier this month while Jebulani and Banreenahreenkah were at their best on the Flat when the ground was riding fast. Multilicious has something to prove having jumped poorly before running out at Wetherby.
