Secret Sign finished last in the Group 2 Vintage Stakes and gets a first-time visor on his handicap debut. MEGAMUNCH makes more appeal as he faced a stiffer task at Redcar last time but acquitted himself well behind the progressive Scentpastparadise and can come out best in this. Secret Symphony was still beaten six lengths when third over C&D on his latest outing but Jumeirah Moon won on the Fibresand at Southwell last time and there's no reason why he shouldn't handle today's surface. He can figure along with recent 7f winner Whitford though the latter is upped in class today.
