It's no surprise Paul Hanagan has chosen Shafrah ahead of Rehanaat. The former showed promise when runner-up at Leicester on his debut while Intermedium also went close over track and trip on his introduction before returning a disappointing favourite at Newmarket. However, Mickael Barzalona has abandoned the latter for stablemate ALPINE RETREAT, a 500,000 dollar purchase, which points to a big run from the newcomer and and he gets the nod. Lightning Spear is another debutant to note while Sellingallthetime should finish closer on the back of a debut run at Goodwood.
