The newcomer Aalim is out of a prolific mare and makes more appeal than Murasil. Galeb Warrior is related to a winner on the Polytrack while Hope's Wishes is another debutante to keep an eye on. DIAMOND MINE was unfancied when finishing a decent third over 1m4f here last month. Luca Cumani's colt won't start 20/1 today and may have the edge on both Near Time and Quality Alliance, who were also placed at this track last time.
