Squeeze My Brain and Three Choirs are not without a chance on their seasonal debuts but MAGIQUE will have benefited from her recent run and is preferred. Jeremy Noseda's filly wasn't beaten far when fourth at Kempton and can confirm superiority with Mandy The Nag in the process of winning this. Sweet Martoni is another who could figure with Ryan Moore's presence taking the eye while this looks easier than Berwin's task at Newbury last week and she makes more appeal than the out-of-form Balady.
