It's hard to see the two elder members of the field getting involved so we are happy to discount them and concentrate our interests upon the remaining three-year-olds. William Haggas tilted ANISEED at the Musidora Stakes at York and though it is of some concern that the daughter of Dalakhani hasn't visited the racecourse since, she should be good enough to take a maiden on the evidence of her fifth place finish. Disposition has ran twice on an artificial surface but John Gosden's filly is on a recovery mission here as, having failed to justify favouritism at Windsor, she has posted two disappointing efforts since. Maun Vrat realised 100,000gns at the sales as a yearling and connections have had to be patient. The half-sister to a Listed winner is worth noting while Caphira will be eligible for a handicap mark after this appearance and will make more punting appeal at that juncture.
