Beaten three lengths for David Wachman in Listed company at the Curragh in August, THREE D ALEXANDER is rated 89 on her debut for new connections. She won't have to run anywhere near that level to open her account in this. Outbacker failed to land the odds here last time and drops back in trip while Dansante only beat two others home in a field of 13 at Kempton on her debut. The American-bred Voyageofdiscovery makes his racecourse debut at a realistic level and is worth noting in the betting.
