Pas De Cheval arrives with something to prove having been beaten out of sight last time. Will ran well on his debut over 7f at Lingfield but the step up to middle-distances looks risky on breeding. Micras sets the standard off a mark of 76 having gone close in a handicap at Doncaster back in June but Social Riser should be capable of better in time. CLASSICAL DUET is a half-brother to Group 2 and 1m5f winner Papal Bull so could be the one with his stamina put to the test for the first time.
