Lucy Minaj went close over C&D on her debut but that was back in May and Annie Gosh has more recent form at the track when beaten a head over 5f here last month. Izzy Boy never figured on his debut but in better company at Ascot and is not easily dismissed while Montcliffe failed to last home over 7f at York last month and is another to consider. MUHARRIB cost 115,000gns and makes his debut for a yard with a fine strike rate at this track especially with it's two-year-old runners. The Godolphin colt could prove good enough to score at the first time of asking and gets the nod.
