For Posterity made a promising start at Newmarket when only beaten a couple of lengths and has every chance of opening his account but IPTISAM also looked a certain future winner when second at Ripon on his debut and, with his stable in red-hot form at present, James Tate's colt gets the vote. Dual Mac has done much better on the Flat than expected having been tailed off in a bumper back in April but Kempton fourth Alegra may improve past him. Mu'Ajiza took a step forward with a second at Ascot last week and is another that could get involved.
