Niger went close at Wolverhampton last time but his debut at sixth at Newbury was arguably better form when just behind fifth placed Keyaadi, who runs in the opening race. Iz She made a pleasing debut at Kempton when a couple of lengths ahead of Narcissist and both should have come on for that experience but a trio of well-bred newcomers take the eye in this contest. Eamaadd is related to multiple winner The Game and is worth noting along with Saeed Bin Suroor's Street Cry colt Albayan. However, Sir Michael Stoute's yard is enjoying a purple patch at present and his SANDS OF FORTUNE may well be good enough to score at the first time of asking.
