Ambleside was tailed off on his debut but stablemate Mirth finished runner-up over track and trip a fortnight ago. That form is some way behind Gods Gift's recent second at Southwell though the latter has yet to prove as adept on a faster surface as both of last year's placed efforts came in testing ground. James Tate also runs two and despite the fact newcomer Sheema is related to four winners, MASAADR has the proven form. He was beaten only a head at Kempton last time with a previous winner nine lengths back in third and can open his account in this. Mighty Thor and Kingston Eucalypt look up against it.
