Mowhoob has had plenty of chances and the less exposed types make more appeal. Mujarrad looks sure to finish closer after a poor effort on his reappearance at Newmarket but CUPERTINO is preferred. The latter faded in the closing stages of his racecourse debut over a longer trip at Ripon but is fancied to open his account in this. Hussar Ballad makes his debut for new connections after a couple of modest efforts in France while Big John Cannon and Forging The Path look others likely to improve.
