Enzaal was second here in October and filled the same spot behind Market Town on his reappearance at Lingfield. But both of those runs were over 7f and it will be a surprise if he's good enough to get the better of MISFER over this longer trip. Sir Henry Cecil's colt was beaten less than a length when favourite at Kempton in November and should be suited by middle-distances this year. Nautilus drops in distance after disappointing when favourite on his reappearance over 1m3f. He has a bit to prove now, though is still preferred to the four-year-old Giantstepsahead.
