Puteri Nur Laila has had plenty of chances without showing any real progress and it would be no surprise if Grace Hull, fourth over C&D last time, improves past her. Attenshun should also be capable of better but a couple of newcomers take the eye. Superoo is a brother to the useful dual winner Gallagher and can boast five winning half-brothers but NORTH POLE is just preferred. He can count high-class Group 1 winner Krypton Factor among his four winning relatives and Sir Mark Prescott's charge gets the nod on his debut.
