Three race in the Godolphin colours and Equity Card is preferred to newcomer Chatterati of Mahmood Al Zarooni's pair. Ittasal represents Saeed Bin Suroor and the American-bred has an entry in the Two-Year-Old Trophy. Perfect Paradise and Emmuska are expected to improve for their recent debuts, but the vote goes to CODE CRACKER. She had Equity Card behind when third on her first start but came up short when sent off a short-priced favourite at Catterick last time. She is given a chance to set the record straight here.
