Beau Satchel wouldn't need to be a world-beater to make a winning start though experience should prove the key in testing conditions. BLUE BULLET made a winning debut over 6f here and has been competing at a much higher level subsequently. He looks the one to be on though Red Queen improved from her opening effort to make Awakened Spirit pull out the stops at Tipperary in August and the winner has scored again. Scatty Cat is by no means out of this as she was sent to the UK to score at Chepstow and ran really well when tackling Group 3 company at Ayr last month.
