BURJ HATTA came up against the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Albaasil at Yarmouth last time and faces nothing of that cailbre here. The Godolphin colt has done nothing wrong in defeat and looks capable of opening his account in this company. Figaro makes his seasonal debut after a couple of promising efforts last season and should be winning sooner rather than later, while Clive Cox is also likely to find a race for Aerial Acclaim this year but he made need this. Stage Attraction has more recent form to his name with a third at Leicester last month and he should be thereabouts at the finish.
