Chapellerie's latest fourth at Newmarket in August looks pretty solid form and she makes more appeal than Millibar, who disappointed over 7f here last time after a decent effort in Listed company. However, MEZZOTINT acquitted himself well on his racecourse debut at Yarmouth when runner-up to Roger Varian-trained hotpot Aljamaaheer. Marco Botti's colt finished clear of the rest and looks up to opening his account in this company. Chart should finish closer and the newcomer Hurry Up George is worth noting as he's related to winners on the all-weather.
