Clear Spell failed to land the odds when only third over 7f here last time and has a bit to find with the runner-up Secret Pursuit. Zamra may well have improved from her debut at Wolverhampton but a speculative vote goes to the latter's stablemate and newcomer DUBAWI LIGHT. He's out of a prolific mare and can include a Group 3 winner amongst his winning relatives. Others newcomers to note in the betting are Late Night Mark, a brother to a Listed winner and No Refund, who cost 92,000gns and is a half-brother to Lowther winner Infamous Angel.
