Pether's Moon was only beaten a neck over track and trip in October while Evangelist was third at Sandown in August. Naaz filled the same spot at Yarmouth three weeks ago and all three are respected here while Godolphin have two in the line-up. Thatchmaster hasn't raced since finishing sixth at Doncaster last June and Comitas is just as interesting. He's by Exceed And Excel, as is LOVE EXCEL who looks to have a really nice pedigree and could be a bit of value on his introduction for Charles Hills. Investment Expert, Atlantic Isle and Faustinatheyounger are other newcomers worth monitoring in the betting.
