Those with experience look nothing special although better is expected from the returning Woodstock after a modest debut at Salisbury in October. He should finish closer over this longer trip, but both newcomers take the eye in this. Sir Michael Stoute introduces the 410,000gns filly Fantasy In Blue. She's related to Group race winners Fantasia and Pink Symphony and any strong support in the betting on her debut would boost confidence. However, SHALWA hails from a yard that has been in fine form over the winter and the sister to high-class Group 2 winner Kite Wood gets the vote for Marco Botti.
