EDDIEMAURICE had Ice Mayden back in fifth when going close over 7f here last time. Doing his best work at the finish, this longer trip will suit and he's preferred to Emef Diamond. The latter showed some promise at Newbury on his debut and Major Surprise will have come on for his third at Haydock earlier this month. State Law finished last of 12 on his introduction and is probably best watched while Racing Post Trophy entry Mustamir is the most interesting of the newcomers.
