PEMBREY has a bit to find on the bare form of his 20/1 success in a maiden here in the autumn but the Godolphin colt has a host of fancy entries and is clearly well thought of. Frankie is on board today and the Teofilio colt can make a winning reappearance though Jungle Beat, winner of his only start at Newbury last July, is equally unexposed and has an Epsom Derby entry. Perennial wasn't beaten far in a Group 3 here in October and also has to go on the short-list but Producer appeared to have his limitations exposed when stepping out of handicaps on his final start of last year. Stipulate ran well in this grade at Haydock and Pontefract in the autumn, however, and could make his presence felt with his stable already in good form.
