Dance With Dragons won on the all-weather track at Deauville in December and Double Your Money scored on the Polytrack at Kempton on his latest start. Pythagorean will surely be winning this year judged on last season's placed efforts and has been dropped 4lb for his return while Evangelist makes his handicap debut on the back of a third at Kempton and it won't be long before he's winning either. KHOBARAA is already off the mark and finished second to Mission Approved on her handicap bow at Lingfield recently. She had a subsequent winner behind and John Gosden's filly is taken to go one better in this.
