Andrew Balding has won the last two renewals so International Love is worth a second glance as she drops back in trip after a modest effort at Newbury. Hekaayaat went close on the Polytrack when last seen at the track in November and she steps up a furlong on her return. Showing signs of greeness and not getting a clear run on his debut at Goodwood, MAJESTY will have benefited for that experience and Richard Hannon's colt gets the nod in this. Midaz disappointed at Southwell last time but fared better on his debut at Kempton.
