Hazzaat didn't really sparkle in modest maidens last year but may do better this time around. Danat Al Atheer is lightly raced but doesn't look particularly well treated while Mandy's Boy and Another Claret were both beaten favourites on their reappearance. Endorsing won at Kempton last month while Tribal Path won his maiden at Lingfield in January, though ran a shocker when odds-on at Redcar 12 days ago. MARHABA MALAYEEN won at Redcar in September and was far from disgraced in a hot nursery at Newmarket on his final start of 2012. He's 3lb lower here and shouldn't be far away if fully wound-up. Star Of Mayfair showed promise last year and could make his mark in handicaps this term.
