Global Icon finished nearer last than first in a valuable sales race at Newmarket recently and Rock Up is also on a recovery mission after a below par effort at Sandown last time. HOMAGE makes more appeal as he went close in a better maiden than this at Newbury on his latest start with a subsequent winner back in fourth. David Jack looks best of the remainder, though he's another who disappointed on his latest start, while the newcomer Carrera is worth a second glance as he's a half-brother to four winners.
