Omotesando is easily overlooked having showed little on his debut and Passionate Affair is having his first start since October, though he went very close over 7f at this track on his introduction. Rookery is another to consider expected to improve on last week's comeback at Lingfield but this can go to L'AVENUE. The latter wears her owners first colours ahead of stablemate Moonlit Sky, a recent runner-up at Southwell, and can open her account after finding only one too good in both previous starts over course and distance.
