Mon Petit Secret was still beaten a long way when third here last month and Bon Port makes more appeal. The latter finished runner-up over track and trip last month when just ahead of a Marco Botti-trained horse. That should give the Newmarket trainer a good handle on the form and it would be no surprise if CAPTAIN MO proved good enough on his racecourse debut for a yard in fine form. The remainder have shown little so far and are hard to fancy.
