EMERGING had a subsequent winner back in fourth when just failing to catch the winner over 7f here last month. He won't need to improve much on that to open his account in this and makes more appeal than Empowermentofwomen, a promising third over C&D on her debut. Mystery Woman didn't show much progress when third at Kempton last time but is still preferred to the likes of Mastered and Roaring Rocks while the newcomer Edwyn Ralph is related to winners in Italy but may be better over middle-distances.
