John Gosden runs two and newcomer Cousin Melchior is worth a second glance in the betting. Stablemate Manazel wears the first colours of his owner ahead of Mazaaher and should be thereabouts along with Ormindo, back in maiden company after a decent third in a Wolverhampton handicap last time. Audacia is another to keep an eye on as she wasn't disgraced on her debut at Nottingham but a speculative vote goes the way of KUANTAN ONE. He ploughed through the mud to finish fourth at York on his introduction and the 150,000euros purchase may be more at home on this surface.
