MUNJAZ was sent off favourite for his debut over track and trip. He wasn't disgraced when third to Pinzolo, who has won again since, and John Gosden's Sea The Stars colt should go close if handling the surface. Paul Hanagan prefers him to the newcomers Mutaraadif and Alzammaar. Touch The Sky and Big Orange are both capable of getting involved having shown some promise on their respective debuts and there's a couple of newcomers to note. The selection's stablemate is one, as Danjeu cost 725,000gns, while Moontime is the first foal of a Group 2 winner and could also go well.
