Despite failing to justify favouritism, Candycakes showed some ability when fourth on her debut over C&D earlier this month and should know more today. Chatterati will almost certainly improve on a modest first effort at Kempton but it's the other Godolphin runner, AL ANDALEEB, which catches the eye here on breeding. By up-and-coming sire Bernadini, she's closely related to several smart performers in the States and could easily make a winning debut. Amelia May, Silver Samba and Winner's Wish are other newcomers to note, though the latter will undoubtedly do better when tackling middle-distances.
